Aim It has been reported that dyslipidaemia impairs left ventricular systolic (LVs) and diastolic (LVd) functions, irrespective of atherogenic effects, in the setting of coronary artery disease. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effects of anti-lipidaemic therapy on LVs and LVd functions by means of multigated radionuclide ventriculography (RNV) in subjects with signs of dyslipidaemia and with preserved left ventricular function.
