Table 1 Relationships between LVEF, RVEF, and RV end-diastolic volume to geometric markers

From: The effect of right ventricular compression on cardiac function in pediatric pectus excavatum

  Range or n LVEF (%); p-value RVEF (%); p-value Indexed RV end-diastolic volume (mL/m2); p-valuea
Age 2.67-24.9 yrs NS NS NS
BSA 0.62-2.20 m2 NS NS NS
Haller 2.1-39 NS NS NS
ln(Haller) 0.74-3.67 NS NS NS
Male vs. female 163 vs. 34 NS NS 95.5 vs. 85.4; p = 0.0039
RV compression, no vs. yes 75 vs. 122 65.9 vs. 63.1; p = 0.0002 58.3 vs. 54.3; p < 0.0001 89.3 vs. 96.5; p = 0.0079
RV compression: free wall vs. AV groove 104 vs. 18 63.2 vs. 62.2; p = NS 54.7 vs. 51.6; p = 0.0413 95.1 vs. 104.5; p = NS
  1. Range, n, or mean values are shown. For hypothesis testing, p-values of < 0.05 were considered significant. NS = not significant.
