Table 2 CMR measurements of control subjects and PH patients.

From: Right ventricular ejection fraction is better reflected by transverse rather than longitudinal wall motion in pulmonary hypertension

  Control subjects PH patients p-value
CI (l/min/m2) 3.3 ± 0.9 2.6 ± 0.9 0.267
HR (bpm) 73 ± 12 82 ± 16 0.107
SV (ml) 72 ± 18 54 ± 21 0.001
SV index (ml/m2) 35 ± 19 30 ± 11 0.001
RVEF (%) 56 ± 8 36 ± 12 0.001
LVEF (%) 65 ± 8 66 ± 9 0.689
RVEDV (ml) 126 ± 36 155 ± 61 0.001
LVEDV (ml) 119 ± 34 90 ± 29 0.001
  1. CI = cardiac index; HR = heart rate; SV = stroke volume; SVI = stroke volume index; RV = right ventricle; LV = left ventricle; EF = ejection fraction; EDV = end-diastolic volume. Values are mean ± SD.
