AIMS To establish the extent, if any, of peripheral changes in asymptomatic patients with severe left ventricular dysfunction. METHODS ANS RESULTS: Nine asymptomatic and nine symptomatic patients with left ventricular ejection fraction, <25%, matched for age and left ventricular ejection fraction (asymptomatic vs symptomatic, age: 52+/-1.5 vs 55.9+/-2.5 years [Mean+/-SEM], left ventricular ejection fraction: 16+/-2 vs 19+/-2%P=0.23 and 0.48, respectively) were studied and compared with 26 age… CONTINUE READING
