Clinical and bio-chemical profileof the patients having normal coronary angiogram was retrieved from hospitalrecord. Patients, whose computerized data could not be retrieved fromdepartment database, were excluded from the study.

Results: Out of 8425 angiograms reviewed, 816(9.7%) were having normalcoronary arteries. Mean age was 42±7.4 years. Females were 66.7%. Clinicaland biochemical profile for normal coronary angiograms was as follows:smokers 59%, family history of premature coronary artery disease 41%, hyperlipidemia18.5%and hypertension 14%. Diabetes was present only in 2.1%.Among females: 11% were current users of oral contraceptives pills, 3.4% werepost menopausal and 0.87% pregnant. Mean BMI was 25.4±5.2 and total cholesteroland triglyceride were 278±31mg/dl and 180±28mg/dl respectively.
