Chronic stable angina is the initial manifestation of ischemic heart disease in approximately one half of patients [1]. The pathogenesis of ischaemic heart disease involves inflammatory mechanisms, as well as endothelial activation and dysfunction (often linked to dyslipidaemia), which lead to the formation of atherosclerotic plaques in the coronary vessels and favour plaque growth, with subsequent disruption or erosion resulting in acute coronary events.

This suggests a role for inflammation in the modulation of the coronary microvascular circulation of such patients. Furthermore, and attesting to the pathogenic role of inflammation, CMD has recently been described both in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus and rheumatoid arthritis [41, 42].
