    Treatment
    of Stable Angina – Use drugs
    before percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty.

    British
    Med Jr, 321; 8 July 2000,

     


    It is generally
    agreed that the acute coronary syndrome (unstable angina) needs
    treatment with either coronary bypass or angioplasty.

     

    However,
    the results of bypass and angioplasty do not differ much from
    standard medical treatment. In cases with stable angina a large review now reveals that even in
    chronic stable angina symptoms are relieved more in patients with
    bypass and angioplasty. The
    effect on morbidity and mortality do not differ very much in these
    three modes of treatment.
