Patients with cardiac events show higher LVEDD and lower EF than patients without cardiac events.
14) During the follow up period in our study improved systolic function (decrease LVEDD and EF) was observed in patients without cardiac events, despite the absence of clear explanation for that result but possibly because spontaneous improvement in systolic function can occur in patients with DCM.

Previous studies have also reported other adaptations to physical training, such as increased LVEDD (Pluim et al.

The increased use of beta-blockers and digoxin in the idiopathic DCM group may reflect the fact that this group of patients had more severe disease, as evidenced by a greater LVEDD
and lower LVEF.
Systolic blood pressure was the only parameter related to LVEDD ([beta]=0.
In our study, IVS, LVPW and LVMI (LV hypertrophy) were significantly higher in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd examination of diabetic patients, LVEDD (LV dilatation) was higher in 2nd and 3rd examination, and lastly IVRT (LV diastolic dysfunction) was significantly higher in the 1st and 2nd examination than those in controls.
