angina pectoris of coronary heart disease is a common clinical disease with high paroxysm and mortality, which is a serious threat to human life and property safety. This disease belongs to the category of chest arthralgia in traditional Chinese medicine. A famous professor of traditional Chinese medicine in Shaanxi Province believes that the pathogenesis of the disease is based on deficiency and excess, based on deficiency of heart and spleen, qi depression, blood stasis and blocking heart pulse. The pathological process can be summarized as deficiency, depression and blood stasis. The treatment should be based on the principle of tonifying the heart and spleen, soothing the liver and relieving depression, promoting blood circulation and removing blood stasis, and patency of veins, so as to achieve the purpose of invigorating Sanjiao, harmony of qi and blood, and patency of veins. Professor Liqin provides experience and ideas for the treatment of this disease with the thinking of syndrome differentiation and treatment of traditional Chinese medicine and the addition and subtraction of the main prescription of traditional Chinese medicine, combined with the diagnosis and treatment of modern medicine. One attached medical case was corroborated.
