From: Cardiac involvement in patients with Becker muscular dystrophy: new diagnostic and pathophysiological insights by a CMR approach

Variable Coefficient ± SE p value
LGE -4.67 ± 0.88 0.035
LV-EDV -0.76 ± 0.10 0.003
LV mass -0.87 ± 0.13 0.013
Age -1.43 ± 0.17 0.003
GWMS -9.44 ± 0.73 <0.001
LVEDD -0.34 ± 0.06 0.028
  1. LVEF = left ventricular ejection fraction; LGE = late gadolinium enhancement; LV-EDV = left ventricular end-diastolic volume; GMWS = global wall motion score; LVEDD = left ventricular end-diastolic diameter.
