Stable Angina complications
back to top
Complications could include:
Angina is a condition marked by a crushing pain in your chest. It is due to inadequate blood supply to your heart muscle, which deprives your heart of oxygen.
A clot blocks the blood flow to the heart (heart attack), and damages heart muscle. Symptoms include chest pain, shortness of breath, and a blue or grey tinge to the skin.
An arrhythmia occurs when electrical impulses, which direct and regulate heartbeats, don't function properly. Heart arrhythmias are common and usually harmless.
An abnormal heart rhythm is when your heart beats too fast, slow, or irregularly. This is also called an arrhythmia. Within the heart is a complex system of valves, nodes, and chambers that control how and when the blood is pumped.
