Angina is something related to the heart I believe. They do many modes of treatment like medications, injections, angioplasty and surgeris, I have heard all of thes. Mainly it depends on the severity I guess. With many advances, I dont think that you shoud worry much. Hope she gets well soon.

Hi well come to HCM.
If it is confirmed angina chances af survial are very good with angioplasty or CABG
depending on site of block and extent of block. How ever her general condition is very
important to know before predicting any prognosis. pleuricy is not life threatning and
can be take care of. Thanks
