Seventy patients having aortocoronary vein bypass grafting surgery for angina pectoris underwent preoperative invasive exercise testing to symptom limits and again 6 to 14 months postoperatively. Cardiac output was measured using the direct Fick principle. Postoperatively at maximal exercise, there was a 3.11 liters/min (p less than 0.0001) increase in cardiac output in men (n = 61) and a 2.04 liters/min (p less than 0.01) increase in women (n = 9). Patients with complete revascularization showed a significantly greater improvement in cardiac output postoperatively than did those with incomplete revascularization (26 versus 6%, p less than 0.0001). The major reason for the increased maximal cardiac output was a marked increase in heart rate while stroke volume was maintained at the same preoperative level. These findings were true irrespective of preoperative use of beta-adrenergic blocking drugs.
