To determine whether the postexercise systolic blood pressure (SBP) response is a useful marker of left ventricular filling abnormalities, supine leg exercise testing was conducted in 14 control subjects and 70 patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). An abnormal postexercise SBP response (the ratio of SBP after 3 min of recovery to the peak exercise SBP) was defined as 0.85 or more, which represented the cutoff point with the highest sensitivity and specificity for prediction of pulmonary artery wedge pressure (PAWP) of at least 20 mmHg at peak exercise in CAD patients. There was a significant difference between the SBP ratios of the two groups (Control, 0.72 +/- 0.05; CAD, 0.86 +/- 0.13; p < 0.01). There was no significant difference between the PAWP of the two groups at rest, but the PAWP at peak exercise was significantly higher in the CAD group (20.2 +/- 8.9 mmHg) than in the control group (11.5 +/- 4.0 mmHg)(p < 0.01). PAWP at peak exercise was > or = 20 mmHg in 35 (50%) of the 70 CAD subjects. The SBP ratio was significantly correlated with PAWP at peak exercise (r = 0.67, p < 0.01) in the CAD group, but not in the control group. An SBP ratio of > or = 0.85 showed a sensitivity of 80% and a specificity of 80% for predicting a peak exercise PAWP of > or = 20 mmHg in CAD patients.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS)
