Complications of Angina:
An episode of angina is not a heart attack,
but it does mean that you have a greater chance of having a heart attack.
Angina pain means that some of the heart muscle is not getting enough
blood temporarily. A heart attack, on the other hand, occurs when the
blood flow to a part of the heart is suddenly and permanently cut off,
usually by a blood clot. This can lead to serious heart damage. (Source: excerpt from Angina: NWHIC)
