Abstract

The novel finding of this study is that the major difference in metabolism during SMI and angina pectoris is in the state of lactate production, which is absent during SMI and present during angina. We assume that lactate is the stimulus of cardiac ischemic pain and when its level increases, it stimulates pain receptors leading to chest pain.
