Table 3 Lung weight/body weight ratio and liver weight/body weight ratio in normal heart animals and hypertrophic heart animals used for the experiment

From: Remote preconditioning in normal and hypertrophic rat hearts

  normal n = 14 hypertrophic n = 14 p
LW/BW ratio 5.534 ± 0.08274 5.396 ± 0.04775 0.190
LiW/BW ratio 44.13 ± 0.3586 44.02 ± 0.3085 0.8272
  1. The organs potentially affected by heart failure had a similar growth in normal-heart and hypertrophic heart rats. BW = body weight, LW = lung weight, LiW = liver weight.
  2. Values are expressed as the mean ± SEM.
