Table 2 Effect of therapy on left ventricular dimensions and global systolic function

From: Relation between regional and global systolic function in patients with ischemic cardiomyopathy after β-Blocker therapy or revascularization

  β-blocker therapy Revascularization
  Baseline Follow-up Baseline Follow-up
LVEDV (ml) 271 ± 63 254 ± 55 238 ± 48 250 ± 59
LVESV (ml) 190 ± 63 163 ± 54* 152 ± 35 140 ± 41*
LVEF (%) 31 ± 7 37 ± 9* 36 ± 6 44 ± 6*
  1. LVEDV: left ventricular end-diastolic volume; LVESV: left ventricular end-diastolic volume; LVEF: left ventricular ejection fraction.
  2. *: P < 0.05 for baseline versus follow-up values. Other comparisons were non-significant.
