Cineventriculography in 100 consecutive patients with coronary artery disease subjected to simultaneous coronary cine arteriography showed the presence of ventricular aneurysm in 35. All but one had either compete obstruction of one major or severe narrowing of at least two or three important vessels demonstrated by selective coronary arteriography. The presence of a ventricular aneurysm could usually be suspected during coronary arteriography by the marked sparsity, or wide separation, or both, of the arterial branches in a given site. Mural thrombus was suggested by either a filling defect or a 'mackerel-sky' pattern. Radiological cardiomegaly was not always present; plain roentgenogram
