IVMS-CV Pharmacology -Anti-Aniginal Agents

  1. 1. CV Pharmacology Anti-Anginal Agents Prepared and presented: Marc Imhotep Cray, M.D. BMS and CK-CS Teacher Reading: Antianginal Drugs Formative Assessment Practice question Clinical: e-Medicine articles Coronary Artery Disease Risk Factors for CAD Angina Pectoris
  2. 2. 2 Coronary heart disease (CHD) Defined (Etiologic Dx)  Coronary heart disease (CHD) is a condition in which proper circulation of blood and oxygen are not provided to heart and surrounding tissue.  Result is due to a narrowing of small blood vessels, which normally supply heart with blood and oxygen.  Coronary heart disease, a type of cardiovascular disease, is the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States.
  3. 3. 3 Causes (Anatomic Dx)  The typical cause of coronary heart disease is atherosclerosis, which takes place with plaque and fatty build up on the artery walls, narrowing the vessels.
  4. 4. 4
  5. 5. 5 CAD Risk Factors  Certain conditions are considered to put an individual at greater risk for coronary heart disease. The following are some risk factors: 1. Age (particularly 40+) 2. Diabetes 3. Genetics (heredity) 4. High blood pressure 5. High bad cholesterol (LDL) 6. Increased levels of C-reactive protein, fibrinogen, or homocysteine 7. Lack of sufficient physical activity 8. Low good cholesterol (HDL) 9. Menopause 10. Obesity 11. Smoking
  6. 6. 6 Symptoms  Some more frequent symptoms of coronary heart disease include: 1. Angina (ischemic pain) 2. Myocardial Infarction 3. Shortness of breath
  7. 7. 7 Diagnosis  Diagnosis of coronary heart disease may be accomplished by a variety of means: 1. Coronary angiography 2. Coronary arteriography 3. Coronary CT angiography 4. Echocardiogram 5. Electrocardiogram (ECG) 6. Electron-beam CT (EBCT) 7. Exercise stress test 8. Magnetic resonance angiography 9. Nuclear scan
  8. 8. 8 Treatment  Coronary heart disease treatment methods may include: (depends on the presenting Physiologic Dx) 1. Angioplasty with stenting 2. Coronary artery bypass surgery 3. Medication 4. Minimally invasive heart surgery 5. Proper diet and exercise 6. Quitting smoking
  9. 9. 9 Coronary Artery O2 Supply and Demand
  10. 10. 10 Angina Pectoris (Chest Pain)  When the supply of oxygen and nutrients in the blood is insufficient to meet the demands of the heart, the heart muscle aches  The heart demands a large supply of oxygen to meet the demands placed on it The myocardial supply:demand ratio--a critical review. [Am J Cardiol. 1978]

  12. 12. 12 Antianginal Pharmacologic Agents  Nitrates  Beta blockers  Calcium channel blockers
  13. 13. 13 Types of Angina  Chronic stable angina (also called classic or effort angina)  Unstable angina (also called preinfarction or crescendo angina)  Vasospastic angina (also called Prinzmetal’s or variant angina)
  14. 14. 14 Antianginal Agents: Therapeutic Objectives  Increase blood flow to ischemic heart muscle and/or  Decrease myocardial oxygen demand
  15. 15. 15 Antianginal Agents: Therapeutic Objectives  Minimize the frequency of attacks and decrease the duration and intensity of anginal pain  Improve the patient’s functional capacity with as few side effects as possible  Prevent or delay the worst possible outcome, MI
  16. 16. 16 Antianginal Agents: 1)Nitrates Available forms: Sublingual Ointments Buccal Transdermal patches Chewable tablets Inhalable sprays Capsules Intravenous solutions
  17. 17. 17 Antianginal Agents: Nitrates(2)  Cause vasodilation due to relaxation of smooth muscles  Potent dilating effect on coronary arteries  Used for prophylaxis and treatment of angina
  18. 18. 18 Antianginal Agents: Nitrates(3) Nitroglycerin  Prototypical nitrate  Large first-pass effect with PO forms  Used for symptomatic treatment of ischemic heart conditions (angina)  IV form used for BP control in perioperative hypertension, treatment of CHF, ischemic pain, and pulmonary edema associated with acute MI
  19. 19. 19 Antianginal Agents: Nitrates(4)  isosorbide dinitrate (Isordil, Sorbitrate, Dilatrate SR)  isosorbide mononitrate (Imdur, Monoket, ISMO) Used for:  Acute relief of angina  Prophylaxis in situations that may provoke angina  Long-term prophylaxis of angina
  20. 20. 20 Antianginal Agents: Nitrates(5) Side Effects  Headache  Usually diminish in intensity and frequency with continued use  Tachycardia, postural hypotension  Tolerance may develop
  21. 21. 21 Antianginal Agents: 2)Beta Blockers  atenolol (Tenormin)  metoprolol (Lopressor)  propranolol (Inderal)  nadolol (Corgard)
  22. 22. 22 Antianginal Agents: Beta Blockers(2) Mechanism of Action  Decrease the HR, resulting in decreased myocardial oxygen demand and increased oxygen delivery to the heart  Decrease myocardial contractility, helping to conserve energy or decrease demand
  23. 23. 23 Antianginal Agents: Beta Blockers(3) Therapeutic Uses  Antianginal  Antihypertensive  Cardioprotective effects, especially after MI
  24. 24. 24 Antianginal Agents: Beta Blockers(4) Side Effects Body System Effects Cardiovascular bradycardia, hypotension second- or third-degree heart block heart failure Metabolic Altered glucose and lipid metabolism
  25. 25. 25 Antianginal Agents: Beta Blockers(5) Side Effects Body System Effects CNS dizziness, fatigue, mental depression, lethargy, drowsiness, unusual dreams Other impotence wheezing, dyspnea
  26. 26. 26 Antianginal Agents: 3) Calcium Channel Blockers Prototypical Agents  Verapamil (Calan)  diltiazem (Cardizem)  nifedipine (Procardia) •Dihydropyridines •Amlodipine (Norvasc), Felodipine (Plendil) •Nimodipine •Isradipine •Nicardipine •Nifedipine •Non-Dihydropyridines •Bepridil (Vascor) •Diltiazem (Cardiazem) •Verapamil (Isoptin, Calan) Medicinal Chemistry Classes
  27. 27. 27 Antianginal Agents: Calcium Channel Blockers(2) Mechanism of Action  Cause peripheral arterial vasodilation  Reduce myocardial contractility (negative inotropic action)  Result: decreased myocardial oxygen demand
  28. 28. 28 Antianginal Agents: Calcium Channel Blockers(2) Therapeutic Uses  First-line agents for treatment of angina, hypertension, and supraventricular tachycardia  Short-term management of atrial fibrillation and flutter  Several other uses
  29. 29. 29 Antianginal Agents: Calcium Channel Blockers(3) Side Effects  Very acceptable side effect and safety profile  May cause hypotension, palpitations, tachycardia or bradycardia, constipation, nausea, dyspnea
