Objective: To compare the haemodynamic effect of thiopental/fentanyl with etomidate/fentanyl during anaesthetic induction in patients with coronary artery disease with poor left ventricular function (ejection fraction < 45%). Design: A retrospective randomized trial. Setting: Ibrahim Cardiac Hospital and Research Institute. Participants: Twenty patients with coronary artery disease of poor left ventricular function (ejection fraction<45%) scheduled for elective coronary artery bypass surgery.

Measurement & Main Results: Haemodynamic response (heart rate, mean arterial pressure) were recorded at 1 minute interval starting from induction till five minutes
