Angina is the discomfort, tightness or the chest pain that occurs in the area of the muscles of the heart which receives supply of oxygen. Angina is not a disease but a noticeable symptom of coronary disease of the arteries. The symptom shows up easily since the coronary artery disease is the most common type of heart disease. The buildup of plaque leads to the formation of narrower coronary arteries which further lead to lack of oxygenated blood to the heart. This condition is called atherosclerosis. There is an increased risk of coronary heart disease, pain, cardiac arrest and death due to the formation of narrow arteries.
