Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina Treatment: Medicine

There are 12 Medicine treatments for Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina.
Written by ColleenO.

Treatment for coronary artery disease (CAD) and angina involves two main goals:

  • To alleviate immediate angina symptoms
  • To improve heart function and prevent permanent heart damage in the future

Treatment options include lifestyle modification, medicines, surgery and other procedures, and herbs and dietary supplements.

Medicines for CAD and angina include:

If you cannot control CAD with lifestyle changes, medications, and natural treatments, and angina or other cardiac symptoms persist, your doctor may recommend a revascularization procedure such as PCI or CABG (see below). The following procedures are used to treat coronary artery disease and angina:

Treatments include:

Treatments

Effect of Vasodilators on Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina

Vasodilators help enlarge (dilate) blood vessels, enhancing blood flow through otherwise narrowed vessels. Ultimately, the heart can work better, because more blood is delivered to its muscle tissues.

Effect of Beta Blockers on Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina

Beta blockers are intended to prevent anginal attacks or heart attacks. They do this by helping to slow the heart rate and reduce blood pressure, especially during exercise.

Effect of Statins on Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina

Statins help to lower cholesterol levels and decrease inflammation.

Effect of Calcium Channel Blockers on Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina

Calcium channel blockers affect the movement of calcium into the cells of the heart and blood vessels. As a result, blood vessels open wider (dilate). The supply of blood and oxygen to the heart is...

Effect of Antiplatelet Agents on Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina

Antiplatelet agents help treat coronary artery disease (CAD) and angina by preventing the formation of blood clots. They do this by keeping platelets from clumping and sticking together.

Effect of Anticoagulants on Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina

Anticoagulants help prevent the formation of blood clots by thinning the blood.

Effect of Angiotensin-Converting Enzyme (ACE) Inhibitors on Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina

ACE inhibitors work to dilate blood vessels by interfering with the action of angiotensin, a chemical that contracts and narrows blood vessels.

Effect of Ranolazine (Ranexa) on Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina

Ranolazine reduces angina by improving blood flow, helping the heart work more efficiently.

Effect of Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) on Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina

A catheter is inserted into the artery in your groin (or less likely your arm). The catheter, which has a tiny balloon at the tip, is guided into the affected artery using x-ray pictures, displayed on...

Effect of Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) on Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina

During a CABG procedure, a blood vessel (vein) is taken from the leg or chest or wrist and grafted into a diseased artery, bypassing the blocked area. If more than one area is blocked, a bypass can be...

Effect of Enhanced External Counterpulsation (EECP) on Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and Angina

EECP is a noninvasive procedure in which inflatable bags are wrapped around the legs (like a blood pressure cuff around the arm) and inflated and deflated in concert with the patient’s heart beat. The...
