Although it is widely believed that mortality in patients with coronary artery disease is directly related to its severity, there has been virtually no systematic examination of this assumption. Selective coronary arteriography has facilitated investigation of this problem by providing the means to delineate severity of coronary artery disease during life. Accordingly, mortality related to the disease was studied in 66 patients with angina pectoris and angiographically documented significant coronary artery disease. Patients were classified as having one-, two-, or threevessel disease. All patients received only medical therapy. Duration of observation was 26.1 ± 13.5 (SD) months during which there
