Hello, my father has angina pectoris. He got it several years ago. He smokes for twenty tears now, and he has been taking alcohol for a long time, not anymore though. But he cannot leave cigarettes. He drinks some medications for his condition. Some other doctor mentioned that there might be ischemic heart disease involved. Is there relation between ischemic heart disease and angina pectoris?

Yes, there is a relation. Angina pectoris is actually a form of ischemic heart disease. The most dangerous form would be an infarct. So, the best thing he could do is stop with smoking because he damages his blood vessels in that way. Angina pectoris is caused by the insufficient blood flow to the heart and is manifested with pain attacks (chest pain).
