Meaning of Angina
Angina pectoris, commonly known as angina, is the sensation of chest pain, pressure, or squeezing, often due to ischemia of the heart muscle from obstruction or spasm of the coronary arteries. - See link


Angina in Spanish is Angina de pecho
La angina de pecho, (también conocida como angor o angor pectoris), es un dolor, generalmente de carácter opresivo, localizado en el área retroesternal, ocasionado por insuficiente aporte de sangre (oxígeno) a las células del músculo del corazón. El término proviene del griego ankhon, estrangular, y del latín pectus, pecho, por lo que bien se puede traducir como una sensación estrangulante en el pecho. - See link
