Refractory Angina

What is Angina?

Angina is a form of chest pain caused by reduced blood flow to the heart and is a direct symptom of coronary artery disease. This condition is often described as squeezing, heaviness, tightness, or pain in your chest. Some people with angina symptoms say angina feels like a heavyweight lying on their chest. Angina may be a new pain that needs to be checked by a doctor or recurring pain that goes away with treatment. It is estimated that as many as 1,000,000 people in the United States have chronic symptomatic coronary artery disease

The team at the Cords of Revitalization clinic understands that there is a drastic need for alternative and advanced methods for managing and maintaining untreatable Refractory Angina (RFA). That is why our clinic provides IV therapy to patients suffering from RFA, helping to alleviate pain and other related symptoms. Let our team help restore your quality of life and provide reassurance that there are still options for RA patients.

What is Refractory Angina?

Refractory angina is a persistent and painful condition characterized by the presence of angina caused by coronary artery disease, which cannot be treated or managed by medical therapy, angioplasty/percutaneous interventions, and coronary bypass surgery. There are certain elements that must be present in order to receive this diagnosis. Your condition must be carefully evaluated by a medical professional. A chronic diagnosis is defined as any pain persisting for more than 3 months.

Managing Refractory Angina With Stem Cell Therapy

Refractory angina (RFA) is a debilitating disease characterized by cardiac pain resistant to conventional treatments for coronary artery disease including:

  • Nitrates
  • Calcium-channel
  • β-adrenoceptor blockade
  • Vasculoprotective agents
  • Percutaneous coronary interventions
  • Coronary artery bypass grafting

The persistent pain, poor general health, psychological distress, and activity limitations often have a very serious negative impact on the patient’s quality of life! Effective care for RFA patients is seriously underdeveloped. There is a lack of a coordinated strategy between the cardiovascular and pain science branches of medicine, meaning at this time, it can be challenging to manage RFA with traditional methods.

Studies suggest that stem cell therapy may be the most optimistic outlook for patients with untreatable RFA. Coronary artery disease often leads to the blockage and death of capillaries and blood vessels, and it is this insufficiency that will lead to the development of angina and eventually RFA. Stem cell IV therapy helps patients repair damaged blood vessels and encourages cellular proliferation, helping the body generate new blood vessels!

These newly formed and repaired blood vessels can increase proper blood flow to the area, reducing pain and alleviating other associated symptoms.
