Table 3 CMR results in acute myocarditis and at follw-up

From: Relation between myocardial edema and myocardial mass during the acute and convalescent phase of myocarditis – a CMR study

Variable Acute Follow-up Difference between means P-value acute vs. follow-up
LV mass (g) 156.66 ± 30.56 140.33 ± 28.30 -16.33 <0.0001
LV mass/height (g/cm) 0.90 ± 0.15 0.80 ± 0.12 -0.10 0.0001
LVEDV (ml) 158.10 ± 40.01 153.57 ± 37.50 -4.52 0.395
LVEDV/height (ml/cm) 0.89 ± 0.19 0.85 ± 0.19 -0.04 0.2859
Ejection fraction (%) 59.95 ± 6.39 64.14 ± 5.26 4.19 0.015
T2 ratio 2.41 ± 0.39 1.68 ± 0.29 -0.72 <0.0001
