Complications of Angina Pectoris

That Crushing and Squeezing Chest Pain
Complications of Angina
Angina pectoris which is a choking and suffocating pain is typically described as a squeezing pressure, heaviness, tightness or pain in the chest. Complications of angina occur as a result of underlying coronary heart disease (CHD) progression. If a plaque (fat) obstructs arterial flow and causes angina, an acute blood clot might form in the process which may fully or partially block the artery, the heart muscles supplied by the artery will die. The result is an acute myocardial infarction.

Decreased blood flow to the heart muscles can also cause an irregular heart beat (arrhythmia) that can prevent the heart muscles from pumping blood effectively, or even cause sudden cardiac death. Certain types of arrhythmia may also encourage blood clot formation in the heart, thereby increasing the risk of heart attack and stroke.

The most serious Complications of Angina Pectoris are:
  • Heart attack, and
  • Stroke.
Outside these, some other well pronounced Complications are:
  • Circulatory shock,
  • Heart failure,
  • Fluid accumulation in the lungs (pulmonary oedema),
  • Blood clot in the lungs (pulmonary embolism),
  • Recurrent myocardial infarction,
  • Hypertension, etc.
