Chronic stable angina is common and is a difficult-to-manage problem when patients begin to fail conventional therapy especially when maximal revascularization has been provided. The most promising agent in development is ranolazine, a late sodium channel inhibitor and partial fatty oxidation inhibitor which has unique and desirable anti-ischemic and electrophysiologic properties. This agent is likely to become standard therapy for chronic stable angina and may play a future role in the management of acute coronary syndromes.
