Abstract

Of 111 patients with normal coronary angiograms, 68 patients had elevated left-ventricular end diastolic pressure and 'low-normal' ejection fraction (Group I) while the other 43 patients had normal left ventricular end diastolic pressure and 'high normal' ejection fractions (Group II). Although the number of patients was too small for meaningful statistical analysis, systematically a higher percentage of patients with diabetes mellitus, hypertension, hypercholesterolemia and smoking history was found in Group I. In contrast to the patients in Group II, patients in Group I tended to have more angina and ischemic events.
