Angina (Overview)

Angina is chest pain that is caused by poor blood flow to the heart muscle. Angina is not an actual disease, but rather a symptom of an existing heart problem. Most commonly, this underlying problem is due to an obstruction of the coronary blood vessels that surround the heart. There are different types of angina including stable angina, unstable angina, and variant angina.

How does isosorbide dinitrate or mononitrate help prevent angina attacks?

Supply and demand: Angina is caused by heart muscle not getting enough blood to meet its needs, think supply vs demand. By relaxing smooth muscle in the walls of coronary arteries, nitrates increase blood flow. They also dilate the body's veins, so less blood returns to the heart, and the heart walls are less stretched outwards. This reduces tension on the heart wall muscle, and hence demand for oxygen/blood. ...Read more
