The occupational status of a group of 100 male patients, 35 to 68 years of age, with chronic ischaemic heart disease was studied, and related to the severity and distribution of coronary artery stenosis seen on the arteriograms and to left ventricular function. In this series of patients 31 per cent were working, 31 per cent were recorded as temporarily sick, and 38 per cent as permanently disabled. It appears that while the type of previous occupation and physical activity associated with the job were of importance, there was no correlation between employability on the one hand and severity and distribution of coronary artery disease on the other. 'Blue-collar' workers had a higher rate of unemployment than those in 'white collar' occupations, but this could not be explained by differences in severity of coronary artery disease.
