About Angina Pectoris

Angina pectoris is the medical term for chest pain. Angina pectoris occurs when a section of the heart doesn't receive adequate blood flow, and therefore doesn't receive enough oxygen. Angina pectoris can range from a tight, squeezing sensation to intense pain to heavy pressure and discomfort in the chest. Angina pectoris is a symptom rather than its own condition, although it indicates an underlying heart condition. Angina pectoris is often a symptom of coronary artery disease or another type of heart disease. Angina pectoris can occur when the arteries become stiff and blocked with plaque buildup, which also increases the risk of a heart attack.
