In patients with chronic stable angina, initiation of intensive risk factor modification remains an urgent and essential part of secondary prevention strategy, as they directly influence the prognosis. Based on the 27th Bethesda Conference, risk factor modification is divided into four categories according to both the strength of evidence for causation and the evidence that risk factor modification established significant reduction in the occurrence of future coronary events.[1] ACC/AHA states that Identifying and, when present, treating Category I risk factors can be an optimal secondary prevention strategy in patients with chronic stable angina.[2] You can read more about general coronary heart disease secondary prevention, here.
