Figure 3

(A) Time course of segmental functional improvement in relation to LGE at baseline, shown as the relative percentage of improvement at 6 ± 1 months (black bars) and 35 ± 6 months (grey bars) follow-up. Only segments with functional improvement are included (n =209); *statistically significant differences between groups. (B) Time course of segmental functional improvement in relation to the degree of contractile dysfunction at baseline, shown as the relative percentage of improvement at 6 ± 1 months (black bars) and 35 ± 6 months (grey bars) follow-up. Data are shown for all segments with functional improvement at the end of the study period (first bar, n =209) and separately for segments with mild hypokinesia (second bar, n =116), severe hypokinesia (third bar, n =72) and for segments with akinesia and dyskinesia (fourth bar, n =21) before revascularisation. *Statistically significant differences between groups.
