The term unstable angina was introduced by Fowler in 1971 . The condition is characterized by a rather varied clinical profile, such as angina pectoris of new onset and initiated by minimal exercise, a change in the “angina characteristics” in a patient who had already suffered from stable exercise-induced angina, or the occurrence of angina at rest or with minimal exertion. It is generally acknowledged that a discrepancy between myocardial oxygen demand and supply is the final mechanism involved. In other words, the basic principle is the same as that encountered in patients with classical effort-induced angina.
