Table 1 Characteristics of the study population

From: Use of CMR-based wave intensity analysis to demonstrate abnormalities in the aorta, the ventricle and ventriculo-arterial coupling: Comparison between patients with complete transposition of the great arteries (TGA), following palliation with atrial switch and arterial switch operations, and normals

Variable Controls Atrial switch Arterial switch
Patients (n) 18 18 18
Male/Female 12/6 13/5 9/9
Age (years) 15 ± 2 30 ± 6 * 15 ± 3 §
BSA (m2) 1.7 ± 0.2 1.9 ± 0.2 * 1.7 ± 0.4 §
EF (%) 69 ± 5 56 ± 7 * 66 ± 5 §
iEDV (mL/m2) 75 ± 13 87 ± 22 * 86 ± 14 *

  1. BSA = body surface area; EF = ejection fraction; iEDV = indexed end-diastolic volume. * indicates p<0.05 with respect to the control cohort; § indicates p<0.05 with respect to the atrial switch cohort
