What is Angina?
Angina is a term used to define chest pain occurring in the settings of a heart problem called coronary artery disease. It is also known as angina pectoris that is found to cause disability and decrease the quality of life. Epidemiologic research indicates it to be a common problem, affecting millions of people worldwide.

The heart pumps blood throughout the body. It requires a continuous supply of oxygen for that purpose. In normally individual this constant flow of oxygen is made sure via smooth blood flow to the heart itself via coronary arteries.

The problem occurs when there is a deposition of lipids in the wall of these vessels. This causes hardening of the vessels walls and narrowing of the lumen ultimately interfering with the blood supply to the heart and causing symptoms of angina.
