Table 2 Functional improvement in segmental LV function at the end of the study period compared with baseline (segmental functional improvement is expressed in absolute numbers of improved segments and a percentage of baseline for every CMR scan according to LGE transmurality; n , number of dysfunctional segments at baseline)
