ACE inhibitors (stable angina)

  • Should be given to improve prognosis in
  •                 Hypertension
  •                 Diabetes mellitus
  •                 CKD
  •                 EF 40% or less
  • In SCAD patients with hypertension, ACEI with DHP is recommended based on
  •                 ASCOT (perindopril with amlodipine) and
  •                 ACCOMPLISH (benazepril with amlodipine).
  • ARB may be substituted for ACEI if ACEI is not tolerated. There are no studies.
