Angioplasty | Angina

Angina is an infection caused by bacteria on the floor of the mouth. It is a form of cellulitis that inflames the tissue under the tongue. The disease does not usually occur in children. Swollen tissues may block the airway or prevent the swallowing of saliva.It often occurs after an oral injury or an infection of the individual roots of the teeth like a tooth abscess.

Symptoms :


Neck pain, swelling or redness


Difficulty breathing

Weakness and fatigue

Some people who have this disease also experience additional symptoms like drooling or earache

Eating a heavy meal, experiencing severe emotional stress, and physical exertion can trigger an episode of angina, which can last anywhere between one and 15 minutes. Because narrowed coronary arteries can’t deliver a sufficient supply of oxygen to the heart muscle, either stable angina or unstable angina develops.

Types of Angina

1. Stable angina – pain is experienced only while doing physical activities or during intense emotional episodes. Taking a rest will usually make the pain disappear.

2. Unstable angina – chest pain experienced from this type may occur more frequently and even while resting or doing minimal activity. Oral medications can usually relieve symptoms but because the pain is unstable, it may be a precursor to a heart attack.

3. Prinzmetal’s angina – pain comes even if you are at rest, sleeping or just being exposed to cold temperatures. Pain is caused by diminished blood flow to the heart’s muscle or due to spasms of the coronary artery very near the blockage.
