To determine the prevalence of decreases in left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction (EF) at rest in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD), including those with stable angina (n = 21), unstable angina (n = 13), and recent myocardial infarction (n = 11), continuous assessment of LV function for 162 +/- 136 minutes was performed using a new nuclear device. The results were compared with those of a group of normal subjects (n = 10) monitored for 80 +/- 28 minutes. Episodes of EF reduction of… CONTINUE READING
