Abstract

The majority of individuals with coronary atherosclerosis do not develop clinical coronary heart disease. The clinical manifestations of angina pectoris are highly variable and the clinician needs to know more about the relationships between myocardial ischemia, chest pain, the causes of ischemia, and the factors that cause the progression and complication of coronary atherosclerosis [2, 5, 6].
