Table 3 Scar morphology at baseline.

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

  β-blocker therapy Revascularization
Scar tissue on LGE CMR (g) 31.9 ± 18 29.5 ± 15.0
Scar tissue on LGE CMR (%) 19.6 ± 10.9 17.1 ± 7.5
Nr of segments with:   
LGE score 0 8.8 ± 3.9 10.6 ± 1.9
LGE score 1 3.9 ± 3.1 2.8 ± 2.4
LGE score 2 1.9 ± 1.6 1.2 ± 1.1
LGE score 3 1.5 ± 1.6 1.7 ± 1.8
LGE score 4 1.0 ± 1.4 0.8 ± 1.2
  1. LGE Score: 0: absence of LGE, 1: LGE of 1-25% of LV wall thickness, 2: LGE extending to 26-50%, 3: LGE extending to 51-75%, and 4: LGE extending to 76-100% of the LV wall thickness. There were no statistically significant differences between both patient groups.
