Remarks on Angina Pectoris
AbstractIn the first volume of the New England Journal of Medicine of 1812, J. Warren published a paper on the subject of angina pectoris, in which clearly emerge the difficulties facing the physicians of that time in trying to formulate a correct diagnosis and prescribe the right therapy. We thought it would be certainly of interest to offer our readers an Italian translation of this article, obviously with some stylistic modifications and supplemented with information coming from other historical scientific works. William Heberden in his report on â€œ breast painâ€ was the first physician to use the term â€œanginaâ€ and the description of symptoms that he gave in 1772 is still today valid and correct.
