The study included 5,307 patients with type 2 diabetes and an LVEF measurement recorded in their chart at the time they started on either empagliflozin or dapagliflozin (Farxiga) and an equal number of propensity-matched type 2 diabetic controls who started on other glucose-lowering drugs, most commonly an oral dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitor.
During coronary angiography, left ventriculogram was performed and LVEF was calculated in each patient with 2 standard projections: left anterior oblique 60[degrees] and right anterior oblique 30[degrees].
LVEF was calculated by assessment of the volumes of the endocardial contours in diastole and systole.
There were more patients (64.28%) with moderate-to-severe LV systolic dysfunction with LVEF < 40% in elderly AWMI group than in IWMI group (11.63%) in the present study.
After anthracyclines' chemotherapy, the patient group had no presentation of heart failure and had mean LVEF within the normal range of 65.7 [+ or -] 5.1%, compared with healthy controls (66.6 [+ or -] 3.4%, P = 0.52).
A decrease in the LVEF is one of the main cardiac toxicities of sunitinib.
Baseline parameters were largely similar between slow and fast progression groups except lower LVEF and maximal transaortic velocity ([V.sub.max]) values in the slow progression group than in the fast progression group.
A single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) stress test was done revealing severe global hypokinesis with regional variability, LVEF of 17%, and no evidence of ischemia.
This resulted in improved regional wall motion of the injected area and global left ventricular myocardial performance with an average increase in left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) by 3%.
