PMID: 34081220.


Ischemic heart disease is among the most common causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. In its stable manifestation, obstructing coronary artery stenoses prevent myocardial blood flow from matching metabolic needs of the heart under exercise conditions, which manifests clinically as dyspnea or chest pain. Prolonged bouts of ischemia may result in permanent myocardial dysfunction, heart failure, and eventually reduced survival. The aim of the present work is to review currently available approaches to provide relief of ischemia in stable coronary artery disease (CAD).
