Angina Pectoris (cont.)
The most common and serious complications of coronary heart disease are heart attack and sudden death from cardiac arrest.
A person's future depends on the severity of their condition, any heart muscle injury
they have incurred, and their risk of heart rhythm abnormalities.
- The outlook is good if there is no prior heart muscle injury and angina is
relieved by rest.
- Reversing risk factors will increase the long-term chances of avoiding a heart attack.
- Many authorities believe that some people can actually reverse plaque buildup through diet and exercise and reversing other risk factors
for heart disease.
