ESC releases updated Guidelines for the Management of Stable Angina Pectoris

The European Society of Cardiology released today new Guidelines for the Management of Stable Angina Pectoris. The updated Guidelines include information on new developments in cardiovascular care, advances that have been made in improving the prognosis of coronary artery disease including the use of statins and ACE inhibitors, as well as strategies to alleviate symptoms.

The Guidelines also provide updated information in the area of risk stratification and define which patients should go on for invasive investigation and treatment.

"Stable angina pectoris is responsible for considerable morbidity and mortality throughout the world," said Professor Kim Fox, chairperson of the ESC Guidelines on the Management of Stable Angina Pectoris. "Improvements in the investigation, management and treatment of this condition has been one of the most remarkable success stories in the last decade. The last European guidelines were published in 1997 and therefore these guidelines provide a new landmark in our mission to reduce the burden of cardiovascular disease in Europe."

Guidelines are critical to appropriate clinical practice, comprising specific recommendations on treatment methods, collated by senior European experts and opinion leaders in the field. For maximal relevance, Guidelines must be well presented, practical and relevant to the clinician on both a national and local level. The formulations and continual update of such Guidelines is one of the primary activities of the ESC. The ESC aims to produce Guidelines that both encompass and allow for national variations across Europe and works with its National Cardiac Society members to facilitate national adaptations and translations of each Guideline issued.
