Table 3 Left ventricular function-obese and control groups

From: Uncomplicated obesity is associated with abnormal aortic function assessed by cardiovascular magnetic resonance

  Control Subjects Obese Subjects P value
EF (%) 65 ± 2 63 ± 3 0.7
ESV index (ml/m) 28 ± 2 26 ± 1 0.5
EDV index (ml/m) 81 ± 5 70 ± 3 0.1
SV index (ml/m) 53 ± 4 45 ± 3 0.1
LVM index (g/m) 81 ± 6 87 ± 4 0.4
  1. Data are presented as mean ± standard error of the mean. All data represent height indexed values. ESV, end-systolic volume; EDV, end-diastolic volume;SV, stroke volume; EF, ejection fraction, LVM, left ventricular mass.
