Published: July 20, 2023

  • Chronic coronary disease (CCD) is heterogeneous group of conditions that includes obstructive and nonobstructive CAD with or without previous myocardial infarction (MI) or revascularization, ischemic heart disease diagnosed only by noninvasive testing, and chronic angina syndromes with varying underlying causes.
  • This guideline provides an evidenced-based and patient-centered approach to management of patients with CCD incorporating the principles of shared decision-making, social determinants of health (SDOH), and team-based care.
  • The guideline provides an update to and consolidates new evidence since the publication of the 2012 Guideline for the Diagnosis and Management of Patients with Stable Ischemic Heart Disease and the 2014 Focused Update of the Guideline for the Diagnosis and Management of Patients With Stable Ischemic Heart Disease.
