Figure 3: LV Remodeling

Echocardiography was performed before, 1 month (Mo), 2Mo, and 3Mo post-myocardial infarction (PMI). (A) Left ventricular (LV) end-diastolic volume (LVEDV), (B) end-systolic volume (LVESV), and (C) ejection fraction (LVEF) images were acquired using the 2-dimensional parasternal long-axis view. Calculation was performed using the Simpson method. Open bars represent before MI, red bars represent PMI. *p ≤ 0.05; **p ≤ 0.005; ***p ≤ 0.005; ****p ≤ 0.005 versus baseline.
