Angina attack - Definition


Definition


"Angina" is a symptom appearing as painful and violent attacks with a feeling of tightness in the chest, sometimes extending to the surrounding areas of the body, often the left arm or jaw. These painful attacks are almost always associated with a partially blocked coronary artery. There are several types of angina attacks: the stress angina attack or stable angina, occurring during physical activity or sport and disappearing when it's over, and the unstable angina attack, at a more advanced stage, with longer and more frequent attacks occurring even at rest. Angina is a warning sign to get an assessment of cardiac function and the coronary arteries.
