Twenty patients with chronic postinfarction angina or left ventricular failure were studied with cardiac catheterization and either quantitative biplane or cineangiocardiography or both. Ten patients had localized ventricular contraction abnormalities as follows: one had a ventricular aneurysm of 231 ml volume with paradoxical expansion of 34 ml per stroke resulting in a 53 gram-meters per stroke work overload of the remaining ventricular myocardium; one had an aneursym of 24 ml with only 6 ml of paradoxical expansion; one had an aneurysm of 214 ml contracting to 173 ml during systole indicating functioning contractile elements in its wall; five had aneurysms
