Geometry and Its Effect on End-Systolic Elastance and Contractility Indexes
(A)The distributions of LV geometry differed among control, hypertensive, and HFpEF patients. Even within the healthy control group, Ees varied according to geometry pattern (B), as did PRSW, sc-eFS, and sc-mFS (C). See text for discussion. Data are mean ± standard error. LV = left ventricular; other abbreviations as in Figures 1 and 2.
