Background: Anesthesia induction is often accompanied by a period of hemodynamic instability, which could be deleterious in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and left ventricular dysfunction undergoing coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) surgery. The aim of this study was to compare the hemodynamic responses to propofol, etomidate, and diazepam following anesthesia induction, laryngoscopy and intubation in CABG surgery patients with low ejection fraction (EF). Methods: A double-blind randomized, clinical study was performed on 150 patients with CAD and left ventricular dysfunction (EF≤35%) scheduled for elective CABG surgery with Cardiopulmonary bypass (CPB). Patients were randomly allocated to three groups A, B, and C. These patients received propofol, etomidate or diazepam at induction of anesthesia, respectively. Hemodynamic variables (systolic and diastolic blood pressure [SBP, DBP], mean arterial pressure [MAP] and heart rate [HR]) were measured and recorded at baseline, immediately before laryngoscopy and tracheal intubation and one and three minutes after intubation. Result: One minute after induction and before laryngoscopy, there was a statistically significant decrease from the baseline in SBP, DBP and MAP in all three groups, but these variables in each hemodynamic parameters in diazepam group were less than other two groups (p
