Many patients present debilitating symptoms related to myocardial ischemia which cannot be controlled by a rational combination of antianginal drugs due to uncontrolled progression of disease with arterial occlusion and diffuse involvement of previous grafts or postangioplasty restenosis, preventing new attempts of myocardial revascularization. This condition is defined as refractory angina, which greatly impairs the quality of life of the affected. The goal of rehabilitative therapy in such a… Expand

Recommendations for advancing the care of Canadians living with refractory angina pectoris: a Canadian Cardiovascular Society position statement.
TLDR
Refractory angina is a debilitating disease characterized by severe, unremitting cardiac pain that is resistant to all conventional treatments for coronary artery disease and the global prevalence of RFA is ever increasing. Expand
Enhanced external counterpulsation and future directions: step beyond medical management for patients with angina and heart failure.
TLDR
Enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP) therapy is not only safe in patients with coexisting heart failure, but also is shown to improve quality of life and exercise capacity and to improve left ventricular function long-term. Expand
The role of spinal cord stimulation in the treatment of chronic pain postlaminectomy
TLDR
The experience using SCS as a method of treatment in 182 patients with postlaminectomy pain is described, in which 53% successful pain relief was obtained over a mean follow-up period of 8.8 ± 4.5 years. Expand
2007 Chronic Angina Focused Update of the ACC/AHA 2002 Guidelines for the Management of Patients With Chronic Stable Angina
TLDR
This dissertation aims to provide a history of FACC-FAHA pedagogical practices in India from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which FACC and FAHA were introduced. Expand
The multicenter study of enhanced external counterpulsation (MUST-EECP): effect of EECP on exercise-induced myocardial ischemia and anginal episodes.
TLDR
Enhanced external counterpulsation reduces angina and extends time to exercise-induced ischemia in patients with symptomatic CAD and was relatively well tolerated and free of limiting side effects in most patients. Expand
Gene therapy with vascular endothelial growth factor for inoperable coronary artery disease.
TLDR
Direct myocardial gene transfer with phVEGF165 via a mini-thoracotomy can be performed safely and may result in significant symptomatic improvement in patients with "inoperable" coronary artery disease. Expand

TLDR
The combined effect of diet and guggulipid at 36 weeks was as great as the reported lipid-lowering effect of modern drugs. Expand
Cardioprotective activity of alcoholic extract of Tinospora cordifolia in ischemia-reperfusion induced myocardial infarction in rats.
TLDR
The present study suggests the cardioprotective activity of T. cordifolia in limiting ischemia-reperfusion induced myocardial infarction. Expand
EVALUATION OF CARDIOPROTECTIVE ACTIVITY OF POLYHERBAL FORMULATION ON ISOPROTERENOL INDUCED MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION IN WISTAR RATS
TLDR
Histopathological observation revealed a marked protection by polyherbal formulation in myocardial infarction and this cardioprotection might be attributed to reduce oxidative stress. Expand
