In this article, the author presents his views on the non-invasive techniques in the evaluation of the patient with coronary heart disease. With careful use of ordinary methods of physical examination with or without the added maneuvers of amyl nitrite inhalation, hand grip and squatting, judicial use of phonocardiography and apex-cardiography, and frequent use of systolic time intervals, the practicing cardiologists and internists can gather a lot of valuable information by the non-invasive techniques which are extremely helpful in the evaluation of patients with coronary artery disease.

    Recently, several vasoactive molecules have been found in pericardial fluid (PF). Thus, we hypothesized that in coronary artery disease due to ischemia or ischemia-reperfusion, the level of vasoconstrictors, mainly endothelin-1 (ET-1), increases in PF, which can increase the vasomotor tone of...
