The prognostic value of the left ventricular ejection fraction(EF) was compared to that of other commonly used indices--severity of coronary artery disease, left ventricular end-diastolic pressure, cardiac index, and abnormal ECG--in 144 patients with coronary artery disease followed for an average of 14 months on medical management. During this period, 14 patients (10%) died. Analysis of the mortality demonstrated that the EF was the most powerful predictor of short-term survival. Thus… CONTINUE READING
