The participants were subjected to a six-month IEET program.
After IEET, the heart rate was significantly lower, whereas there was no significant difference in blood pressure.
LV strain parameters such as GS (%), apical 4C (%) and 2C LS (%) were significantly increased by IEET (p<0.05, for all); however there was a statistically non-significant increase in LAX LS measurements (%) (p = 0.16).
Our findings are consistent with these studies showing that long term IEET increases the LV strain without changing the EF.
However, heart rates of the participants in our study were decreased therefore the possibility of a heart rate decrease induced by IEET for an increase of the LV strain is very low.
Similarly, we observed increases in LV torsion before and after a six months period of IEET. Our results showed that an increase in LVtw might represent an important component of the myocardial remodeling related to IEET.
