Table 4 Multivariable analysis, Infarct size

From: Gender but not diabetes, hypertension or smoking affects infarct evolution in ST-elevation myocardial infarction patients – data from the CHILL-MI, MITOCARE and SOCCER trials

Variable Regression coefficient SE Partial correlation p-value
Model r2 = 0.29
 Female gender −3.2 1.4 −0.1 0.018
 Current smoker 0.2 1.5 0.0 0.896
 Smoker or ex-smoker −1.9 1.4 −0.1 0.192
 Anterior injury 8.4 1.1 0.4 < 0.001
 TIMI 0 5.3 1.2 0.2 < 0.001
 LVM 0.0 0.0 0.1 0.217
  1. LVM normalized to body surface area was also tested, showing no differences in significance levels, but as covariance with LVM is high it is presented in a separate analysis found in the Appendix
  2. LVM left ventricular mass
