The article focuses on the deformities of high-gain frank P-loop vectorcardiograms in patients with coronary artery disease or rheumatic heart disease. The study group was comprised of 16 consecutive patients who had clinical evidence of rheuinatic heart disease or coronary artery disease. In 15 subjects the clinical diagnosis was confirmed by angiography. All patients had normal sinus rhythm at the time of study. In the group of patients with rheumatic heart disease, the frontal plane vectorcardiograms P-loops demonstrated a mean approximatey 2.3 bites.
