Table 2 Layer-specific global longitudinal strain of the left ventricle compared to coronary angiography findings

From: Carotid artery intima-media thickness is closely related to impaired left ventricular function in patients with coronary artery disease: a single-centre, blinded, non-randomized study

  < 50% stenosis (n = 11) ≥ 50% stenosis (n = 18) p-value
Endocardial LVGLS - 19.5 ± 2.2 -15.0 ± 2.7 0.001
Midmyocardial LVGLS -15.4 ± 1.6 -13.1 ± 2.6 0.011
Epicardial LVGLS -12.8 ± 1.9 -11.6 ± 2.2 0.169
  1. Left ventricular global strain (LVGLS) is in mean ± SD.
