          Abstract

          100 inoperable coronary patients defined by severe angina, multistenosed vessels and narrowed or thrombosed distal beds performed a symptom-limited exercise test before coronary angiogram. During a 46 ± 30 month period of follow-up 29 died, 25 of whom by cardiac cause. Among the exercise test data, the most discriminant for long-term survival was the exercise capacity, in spite of a poor correlation parameter for prediction of life expectancy.
