Table 2 Relationship between coronary anatomic and functional measures

From: Local coronary wall eccentricity and endothelial function are closely related in patients with atherosclerotic coronary artery disease

% Coronary Vasoreactive Change with IHE vs. Coronary Wall Measure: % area change % velocity change % flow change
Healthy: Mean Coronary Wall Thickness R = -0.17 R = 0.02 R = -0.02
P = 0.46 P = 0.93 P = 0.92
Healthy: Eccentricity Index R = 0.18 R = 0.08 R = 0.14
P = 0.46 P = 0.74 P = 0.56
CAD: Mean Coronary Wall Thickness R = -0.54 R = -0.11 R = -0.34
P = 0.001 P = 0.51 P = 0.05
CAD: Eccentricity Index R = -0.60 R = -0.06 R = -0.27
P = 0.0002 P = 0.75 P = 0.13
  1. Relationship between MRI measures of coronary remodeling (Coronary eccentricity index and mean coronary wall thickness) vs. coronary endothelial functional measures (% area change, % coronary peak velocity change and % coronary blood flow change with IHE) in healthy subjects and in patients with coronary artery disease using regression analysis
  2. Italized items indicate statistically significant relationships
