Gentles et al., JACC Cardiovasc Imaging 2012
BSA-adjusted z-scores of LV volumes and diameters. Data provided as supplemental material to a discussion on ventricular dysfunction following surgery for aortic regurgitation.
Failure to correct ESV for body size introduces systematic bias to risk assessment.
Note: the study population had the following characteristics:
- age range: (6 - 62)
- bsa range: (0.5 - 2.5)
Data entered for patients outside of these limits should be used with caution.
