These uncertainties were inevitable given that much of the evidence used to guide management was incomplete and out of date. There have been further developments since the European Society of Cardiology guidelines on angina were published in 2006: these include better understanding of the efficacy and role of newer agents such as ivabradine and ranolazine, better understanding of secondary prevention measures, and refinements i

A key priority for implementation in the latest guidance is to ensure that people with stable angina receive balanced information and have the opportunity to discuss the benefits, limitations and risks of their treatment.
