Table 2 Predictors of cardiovascular events

From: Quantitative characterization of myocardial infarction by cardiovascular magnetic resonance predicts future cardiovascular events in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy

  Cardiovascular events (+) Cardiovascular events (-) p – value
Scar volume (cm3) 16.8 ± 12.4 11.7 ± 12.6 0.023
Scar % of the myocardium (%) 10.2 ± 6.9 7.2 ± 6.7 0.037
LVEF (%) 25 ± 10 27 ± 13 0.26
LVEDV (ml) 234 ± 76 230 ± 88 0.41
LVESV (ml) 180 ± 73 175 ± 90 0.40
LVED mass/volume (g/ml) 0.73 ± 0.25 0.84 ± 0.32 0.06
  1. Values are expressed as a mean ± SD. LVEF = left ventricular ejection fraction; LVEDV = left ventricular end diastolic volume; LVESV = left ventricular end systolic volume.
