Table 5 Multivariable analysis, MSI

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

  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. Pre PCI TnT < 15 ng/L = a blood sample acquired before coronary intervention showing a troponin T value < 15 ng/L
  2. LVM left ventricular mass
