If patient presents with recent onset exertional angina then:

  • up to 1/3 experience symptom remission
  • annual mortality is 2-3%
  • there is a 90% 8 year survival when angina is mild and stable

Unstable angina has a worse prognosis, 30% suffering myocardial infarction or death within 3 months.

If there is ventricular dysfunction then the mortality is doubled.
