One of the main goals of treating coronary microvascular disease (MVD) is to relieve pain. Treatments also are used to control risk factors and other symptoms.


Treatments may include medicines such as:

  • Statins to improve cholesterol levels
  • ACE inhibitors and beta blockers to lower blood pressure and decrease the heart's workload
  • Aspirin to help prevent blood clots or control inflammation
  • Nitroglycerin to relax blood vessels, improve blood flow to the heart muscle, and treat chest pain (if this medicine has helped the patient with past symptoms)

If you're diagnosed with coronary MVD and also have anemia, you may benefit from treatment for that condition. Anemia is thought to slow the growth of cells needed to repair damaged blood vessels.


If you're diagnosed with and treated for coronary MVD, you should get ongoing care from your doctor.

Research is ongoing to find the best treatments for coronary MVD.
