Fifty-one patients (mean age 51.6 +/- 7.1 years) with angiographically proven coronary artery disease (CAD) entered the study. In 26 patients (Group I), trimetazidine treatment started twenty-four hours after percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA). Another 25 patients (Group II) without trimetazidine treatment were kept as controls. The groups were comparable by age, gender, risk factors of CAD, coronary anatomy, left ventricular performance, and heart rate variability indices at baseline state.
