These include variables such as CVP, PAOP and ventricular end-diastolic volume
Further, PiCCO estimates global end-diastolic volume
index (GEDVI) and intra-thoracic blood volume index (ITBVI) from the transpulmonary thermodilutional cardiac output curve and these have been shown to be a better marker of LV preload than PAOP in the perioperative period of cardiac surgery (2,9).
LV end-systolic and end-diastolic volumes
, mitral early inflow velocity (E) were also recorded and E/ Vp ratio was calculated.
EF- ejection fraction, LV- left ventricle, LVEDVI- left ventricular end-diastolic volume
index, LVESVI- left ventricular end-systolic volume index, group 1- controls, group 2- patients with nonrestrictive filling pattern, group 3- patients with restrictive filling pattern.
Left ventricular ejection fraction was calculated as the difference between end-diastolic and end systolic volume divided by end-diastolic volume
Pearson's correlation coefficient showed significant correlations between the serum ferritin levels and the following echocardiographic variables: LV end-diastolic volumes
In the former, the end-systolic and end-diastolic volumes
are first estimated by delineating the endocardial borders in two projections.
Pooled results demonstrated that this form of stem cell therapy significantly improves left ventricular function, reducing left ventricular end-systolic and end-diastolic volumes
as well as infarct size and cardiac wall motion.
Left ventricular mass increases and both end-systolic and end-diastolic volumes
