  • Increasing knowledge of the complex mechanisms involved in maintaining normal vascular tone enable selection of targeted antianginal therapies. However, the individual response of each patient will direct the choice of medication used to alleviate ischemic symptoms. Moreover, an appreciation of risk reduction through diet and lipid-lowering efforts becomes more important as the dynamic and intricate roles of the endothelium and endothelium- derived relaxing factor in modulating vasomotor tone become apparent.
