Angina and Cold weather
My 53 year old father had a heart attack at around age 40. A few months ago he had a stint put in for his angina which causes him pain during cold weather. His doctor is pretty poor at explaining things and we were wondering what exactly about the cold causes the pain. Also since the procedure he still feels the same pain in the cold. Is there nothing else that can be done? Is the only other option a bypass, because it doesn't seem to be any better.

I don't know if this is correct or not, but I always attributed the increased angina to constricted blood vessels.  When we're exposed to cold temps, they constrict to try to save body heat.
