Table 4 Peak strain values for different remodeling types

From: Cardiac remodeling and dysfunction in childhood obesity: a cardiovascular magnetic resonance study

Peak strain Normalc n = 48 Concentric Remodeling/Eccentric hypertrophy n = 9 p valuea Concentric hypertrophy n = 10 p valueb
Circumferential −19 ± 2 −18 ± 2 0.51 −17 ± 2 0.003
Radial 31 ± 10 31 ± 14 1.00 35 ± 9 0.55
Longitudinal −15 ± 2 −14 ± 2 0.39 −12 ± 1 <0.001
  1. aConcentric Remodeling/Eccentric Hypertrophy vs Normal
  2. bConcentric Hypertrophy vs Normal
  3. cTwo obese subjects in the normal remodeling group did not complete DENSE imaging and therefore did not have strains available for comparison and one subject in the healthy weight group did not complete cine imaging so is not included in the remodeling type analysis
