The following M-mode measurements were done: LV internal dimensions at both diastole and systole (LVIDd and LVIDs respectively), LV posterior wall dimensions at diastole and systole (LVPWd and LVPWs respectively), interventricular septal dimensions at both diastole and systole (IVSd and IVSs, respectively).
001 for LVIDd and LVIDs respectively) (Table 1; Fig.
In the MI-nebivolol group LVIDs, LVIDd and LVPWd were significantly smaller than those of MI-control group (p<0.
LVEF, left ventricular ejection fraction; LVFS, left ventricular fractional shortening; LVIDs
, left ventricular internal dimension systole; LVIDd, left ventricular internal dimension diastole.
According to our study results, LVIDs
was greater in PHT group than that of normal BP group.
Both LVIDD and LVIDS were significantly higher in abnormal diastolic function group and significantly lesser in patients with pseudo normal pattern of diastolic function.
LVIDS and LVIDD were decreased in pseudo normal group and increased in abnormal group indicating reduced compliance and dilatation of LV respectively.
The LVIDs showed statistically significant negative correlation with hemoglobin (r=-0.
Significant reduction in LVIDs dimensions were observed in anemic patients after therapy (2.
CONCLUSION: Our findings of significant negative correlation of LVIDd, LVIDs, EDV, ESV, SV, SI, CI, with hemoglobin levels in anemic patients, may be as consequence of hyperdynamic circulatory state leading to vascular and cardiac changes.
