Ivabradine (Procoralan®)

Advice

Following a resubmission

ivabradine (Procoralan) is accepted for restricted use within NHS Scotland for the symptomatic treatment of chronic stable angina pectoris in patients with normal sinus rhythm for whom heart rate control is desirable and who have a contra-indication or intolerance for beta-blockers and rate-limiting calcium-channel blockers.

Non-inferiority of ivabradine versus a beta blocker and a calcium-channel blocker was shown in two controlled trials. Long-term protection against cardiovascular events, however, has not been demonstrated
