Abstract

To determine the correlation of quantitative assessment of coronary narrowings.with left ventricular functional impairment induced by exercise, 57 patients with 1-vessel coronary artery disease and without evidence of collateral flow were studied. A significant relation was observed between, minimal cross-sectional area, percent area stenosis, minimal lumen diameter, percent diameter stenosis and the percentage of segmental area change. from rest to peak exercise in a vascular distribution territory (r = 0.76, p 2, (p
