The aim of the present study was to investigate the ventilatory anaerobic threshold in patients with exercise-induced myocardial ischemia. Ventilatory volumes and gas exchanges were measured during treadmill stress testing in 36 patients (11 with previous myocardial infarction) with electrocardiographic criteria of myocardial ischemia during the test and in 23 healthy, untrained control subjects of equivalent age. The anaerobic threshold was detected in 32 of 36 patients (89%) and in 22 of 23 control subjects (96%). The anaerobic threshold was significantly lower in patients than in control subjects (13.5±1.9 versus 19.7±1.7 ml/kg per minute Vo2, p2, p2, p
