In Ayurveda, heart disorders are described briefly under the headingHridroga. The symptoms mentioned in Hridroga are comparable with the symptoms of Angina. Angina is the condition characterized by chest pain resulting from an inadequate blood supply to the heart.

In Ayurveda, description of other heart disorders is not stated clearly. Possibly certain heart disorders have been dealt in disorders like Shwas rog or Vatik Shoth (Oedema) due to prominence of  certain specific symptoms like breathlessness or Oedema respectively.

Krimij rog has been compared with heart disorder developed from severe anaemia caused due to hook worms.

It has been compared with Bacterial Endocarditis by some people.
