The presence of symptoms, EF <60% or LVESD
e"40 mm means that ventricular dysfunction is manifest and the patient must be referred for surgery.
In comparison with our control group, EPO was correlated with a slight reduction in LVEDD and LVESD
at 4 days and also 30 days after surgery from baseline; the difference between the two groups, however, did not constitute statistical significance.
It should be noticed that EF, LVEDD and LVESD
are extremely volume dependent parameters that can justify the differences between several studies in this field.
18%) and this can be attributed to the reduced LVESD
due to increased septal wall thickness seen in this group.
IVS and PW thickness, LVEDD, LVESD
, left ventricular ejection fraction (EF), and LVMI were similar between patients with positive family history and negative family history.
By Pearson's correlation, pre-PCI serum Ang-2 levels were unrelated to total cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, triglycerides, coronary collateral grading, LVESD
, or LVEDD.
The LA dimension, LVESD
, LVEDD and left ventricular ejection fraction remained unchanged significantly [Table 2].
Results: Compared with the results before treatment the NYHA classification LVESD
LVEDD LVEF and6-minutes walking distance of both groups were significantly improved (P less than 0.
Results: In pre-operational and post-operational intragroup assessment in terms of echocardiographic findings; although LVEDD, LVESD
, EDV, PAP and the degree of recurrent MR have been decreased in both groups, the decrease in LVESD
and PAP and the low degree of recurrent MR were statistically significant in Group 1 patients (p=0.
Stepwise multiple regression analysis was also performed to find an association of LVEDD and LVESD
with duration of disease, systolic and diastolic blood pressures, variables with p value <0.
