Table 2 Echocardigraphic measurements

From: Does left atrial volume affect exercise capacity of heart transplant recipients?

Variables  
Left ventricular ejection fraction (%) 67 ± 7
Left ventricular end diastolic volume (ml) 68 ± 19
Indexed Left ventricular end diastolic volume (ml/m2) 34 ± 9
Left atrial volume (ml) 83.5 ± 23.7
Indexed-left atrial volume (ml/m2) 40.6 ± 11.5
Change in left atrial volume (ml/year) 3.9 ± 17.6
Indexed-change in left atrial volume (ml/year/m2) 1.9 ± 8.5
Mitral inflow peak diastolic E velocity (cm/sec) 85.0 ± 23.1
Mitral inflow peak diastolic A velocity (cm/sec) 41.3 ± 13.5
Mitral valve inflow E/A 2.3 ± 1.1
Peak diastolic E velocity of lateral mitral annulus 13.8 ± 3.7
E/E' 6.8 ± 3.3
  1. E = diastolic early filling. A = diastolic atrial contraction. E/A = ratio of peak E velocity to A velocity of mitral inflow. E/E' = ratio of peak E mitral inflow velocity of peak E velocity of lateral mitral annulus. Data are mean ± SD. n = 50 except change in left atrial volume (n = 40).
