Abstract

Successful angioplasty for 10 patients with postinfarction angina was accompanied by a marked improvement in global left ventricular function evident 24 to 48 hours after the revascularization procedure. In contrast, eight patients with postinfarction angina for whom angioplasty was unsuccessful or not attempted did not show similar improvement. These findings indicate that global systolic left ventricular function in patients with postinfarction angina can be improved by coronary angioplasty.
