Table 5 Comparison of clinical and echocardiographic data between patients with preserved and reduced free-wall RV PSS

From: Quantifying longitudinal right ventricular dysfunction in patients with old myocardial infarction by using speckle-tracking strain echocardiography

  Reduced global RV PSS (n = 35) Preserved global RV PSS (n = 36)
Culprit lesions responsible for MI   
Single LAD (n) 11 18
Single LC (n) 6 2
Single RCA (n) 3 6
Multi-vessels (n) 15 10
Residual total occlusion of the culprit lesions   
LAD (n) 3 7
LC (n) 3 1
RCA (n) 10 2*
  1. RV right ventricular, PSS peak systolic strain, MI myocardial infarction, LAD left anterior descending artery, LC left circumflex artery, RCA right coronary artery. *P <.05 vs. patients with reduced global RV PSS.
