Review Article

ABSTRACT Chronic stable angina is a significant problem in older adults. The goal of therapy is to provide symptomatic relief, improve patient quality of life, and prevent subsequent angina or myocardial infarction that could lead to sudden death. The efficacy and safety of drugs such as beta-blockers and calcium channel blockers for managing chronic stable angina in older adults has not been rigorously investigated. Drug selection should be based on physiologic alterations, patient comorbidities, adverse reaction profile, and cost.

Deepali Dixit is a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Pharmacy Practice and Administration at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, in Piscataway, N.J. Katarzyna Kimborowicz is a critical care specialist at Morristown (N.J.) Medical Center. The authors have disclosed no potential conflicts of interest, financial or otherwise.
