Figure 1: The relationship between Εcc and LVEF.

Mentions: Patients with MWF (n = 21) had a similar LVEF to patients without (n = 63) (22.1 ± 11.7 vs 26.9 ± 10.9%, p = 0.85). Patients with MWF had reduced Εcc (-5.9 ± 2 vs -9.4 ± 4.9%, p = 0.001), but similar Εrr (12.5 ± 7.9% vs. 15.9 ± 9.4%, p = 0.31) and Εll (-7.7 ± 3.5% vs -9.0 ± 6.0%, p = 0.18). In patients with similar LVEF, Εcc was consistently lower in those with MWF compared to those without, across a broad range of myocardial function. As shown below, MWF has the effect of altering the relationship between Εcc and LVEF (see Figure 1).
