Progress in coronary surgery has led to new aspects in the treatment of angina pectoris. According to the coronar-angiographic findings, which make an exact identification of the coronary heart disease possible, and according to the ventricular function a therapeutic strategy can be determined today with adequate safety for each individual case. The most important criterium for a decision for surgical or conservative treatment is not only the improvement of the subjective symptoms, in special forms of coronary heart disease the bypass-operation not only results in improved quality of life but also in a considerably increased survival time.
