The handgrip-apexcardiographic test (HAT) is a simple low-level (40% of maximal voluntary handgrip during 2 min) stress test which can detect left ventricular (LV) diastolic abnormalities. To determine whether it contributes to the diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD), HAT was obtained in 68 patients--47 with and 21 without angina pectoris--who prospectively underwent coronary arteriography. According to the highest or lowest individual values of diastolic apexcardiographic indices in 255… CONTINUE READING
