The ECG has not been fully evaluated for its relation to ventricular function and clinical status. One-hundred and four patients with angina pectoris and documented coronary artery disease undergoing diagnostic cardiac catheterization (Group I) and 148 patients with acute myocardial infarction (Group II) were studied. In Group I, 48 patients without pathologic 0.04-sec Q waves (NQ) were compared with 17 with a history of remote inferior myocardial infarction (IQ), 28 with remote anterior-inferior myocardial infarction (AIQ). Findings were as follows left ventricular end-diastolic pressure (LVEDP): NQ 11, IQ 11, AQ 17 (P < 0.005), AIQ 25 mm Hg (P <
