Angina Pectoris Treatment Market, by Drug Class (Beta Blockers, Calcium Channel Blockers, Nitrates, Angiotensin-converting Enzyme Inhibitors, and Other) by Indication (Stable Angina and Unstable Angina) - Global Industry Insights, Trends, Outlook, and Opportunity Analysis, 2017–2025

Angina pectoris is a medical term for chest pain or discomfort, which is caused due to coronary heart disease. Angina pectoris mainly occurs when heart muscle are unable to receive adequate blood. This condition usually occurs when one or more of the heart’s arteries are narrowed or blocked, which is also known as ischemia. Angina pectoris leads to uncomfortable pressure, fullness, squeezing or pain in the center of the chest. The factors that trigger stable angina pectoris include, emotional stress, exposure to very hot or cold temperature, heavy meals or smoking. Angina pectoris can be diagnosed by an electrocardiogram and angiography and could be treated by medication, change in life style, and surgery. A minimal invasive procedure known as angioplasty is also used to treat the angina pectoris. The pain or discomfort caused by angina pectoris is relieved with rest and nitroglycerin. Nitroglycerin relaxes the coronary arteries and other blood vessels by increasing the blood flow to the heart vessels.
