Abstract

Our data demonstrate clearly that patients with LV systolic dysfunction without chest pain or previous MI are unlikely to have 3-vessel CAD and very unlikely to have coronary anatomy suitable for bypass grafting. Of our 108 subjects, only 3 (3%) had 3-vessel CAD thought to be suitable for surgical revascularization.
