Stable Angina

Angina is chest pain or pressure caused by poor blood flow through the blood vessels of the heart muscle. Angina is considered stable if symptoms present themselves following some activity like walking or running, with minimal or non-existent symptoms when resting.

Episodes of stable angina may continue if the person does not make positive lifestyle choices, and they may develop a greater risk for severe complications, such as a heart attack or unstable angina.
