Table 1 Evaluated predictors of RV remodelling

From: Evaluation of CMR predictors of right ventricular remodelling in dilated cardiomyopathy

CMR Imaging Predictors

Baseline LVEF, left ventricular mid wall fibrosis detected on LGE, mitral regurgitation, indexed left and right end diastolic and end systolic volumes.

Clinical Predictors

Age, gender, ethnicity, medication history (use of diuretic, beta blockers, ACE inhibitors, Aldosterone Antagonists), symptom status (NYHA class), resting heart rate, and comorbidities (hypertension and atrial fibrillation).

  1. Evaluated predictors of RV remodelling (LVEF/RVEF=left/right ventricular ejection fraction, LGE= late gadolinium enhancement, NYHA= New York Heart Association symptom classification)
