Left ventriculography with selective coronary angiography was performed on 13 patients with acute myocardial infarcts complicated by cardiogenic shock of left ventricular failure and hypotension. Twelve patients (92-3%) tolerated the procedure well. Irreversible ventricular fibrillation resulting in death occurred in one patient 7-7%) during the opacification of the left coronary artery. Seven (87-5%) of the eight patients treated surgically and two (50%) of the four patients treated medically died. This study shows that although acute myocardial infarction increases the risk of coronary angiography, it is justifiable if surgical therapy is contemplated.
