Table 3 The proportion of non-transmural vs. transmural segments of myocardial infarction

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
Non-transmural MI (1–75% scar of myocardium) 18.4 ± 14.0 13.8 ± 11.2 0.049
1 – 25% scar of myocardium 9.2 ± 11.0 6.7 ± 9.3 0.12
26 – 50% scar of myocardium 9.2 ± 10.6 3.2 ± 3.6 0.03
51 – 75% scar of myocardium 3.5 ± 4.2 4.0 ± 4.5 0.30
Transmural MI (76–100% scar of myocardium) 5.8 ± 10.2 7.2 ± 11.4 0.28
  1. Values are expressed as a mean ± SD.
