Ninety-nine patients with chronic coronary artery disease were prospectively evaluated to determine the reliability of historical, physical, electrocardiographic and radiologic data in predicting left ventricular ejection fraction. The left ventricular ejection fraction measured by radionuclide angiography was normal (greater than or equal to 50%) in 44… CONTINUE READING
