Medical management of stable angina and unstable angina in the elderly with coronary artery disease



Medical management of stable angina and unstable angina in the elderly with coronary artery disease



Clinics in Geriatric Medicine 12(1): 121-140



Coronary artery disease is a major clinical problem in the elderly. This article discusses the medical management of stable and unstable angina pectoris. A review of the general measures and drug therapy used to treat these disorders, especially as they relate to the elderly patient are presented. In addition, new insights into the pathophysiologic mechanisms of chronic stable angina and unstable angina are reviewed.
