Localization of left ventricular ischaemia in angina pectoris by cineangiography during exercise.

    Abstract

    Cineangiography of the left ventricle during exercise has been used in an attempt to define the area of ischaemic myocardium in patients suffering from angina pectoris in whom coronary artery surgery was contemplated. A correlation was established between the site of coronary artery obstruction and the area of abnormal myocardial contraction. This method of localization of regional left ventricular ischaemia may furnish useful diagnostic information when coronary reconstructive surgery is contemplated in patients with exercise-induced angina pectoris.
