An analysis has been made of the structure of a group of patients with coronary heart disease (CHD) subjected to prophylactic control in a city polyclinic and the antianginal treatment performed has been assessed. Clinical examination of 85 patients with diagnosed CHD and angina pectoris (AP) and 111 patients with diagnosed CHD only, demonstrated AP in 46.7 and 35.8% of cases, respectively. 50.4% of the patients had contraindications for bicycle ergometry. An adequate treatment with propranolol, sustak (64 mg) and nitrosorbide was effected in less than 2 and 3, and in 6% of patients, respectively. Calcium antagonists in adequate doses were not used.
