Table 3 Description of differences between CMR parameters of initial CMR and follow-up CMR scan

From: Evaluation of therapy management and outcome in Takotsubo syndrome

CMR parameters    
  CMR I n = 72 CMR II n = 63 (88%) p-value*
LV-EF (%) 49.1 ± 10.1 64.1 ± 5.7 < 0.001
LV-EDVI (ml/m2) 76.2 ± 13.7 72.1 ± 13.9 0.198
T2 Volume (%) 13.5 ± 11.3 0.6 ± 2.4 < 0.001
LGE Volume (%) 0.0 ± 0.0 0.0 ± 0.0  
Δ angiogram-CMR (d) 2 (1–3.5)   
Δ CMR I-CMR II (months) 2.3 (1.3–2.9)   
  1. LVEF, LVEDVI, LGE and T2 volumes are presented as mean and standard deviation. ∆ angiogram-to-CMR, ∆ CMR I-to-CMRII are presented as median with interquartile range
  2. CMR Cardiac magnetic resonance, LV-EF left ventricular ejection fraction, LV-EDVI left ventricular end diastolic volume index, LGE late gadolinium enhancement
  3. *Wilcoxon matched-pairs signed rank test
