Associations between Left Ventricular Cavity Size and Cardiac Function and Overload Determined by Natriuretic Peptide Levels and a Covariance Structure Analysis

Abstract

The effects of left ventricular (LV) cavity size on cardiac function and overload have not yet been fully elucidated. We performed a covariance structure analysis and drew theoretical path models to clarify the effects of hemodynamic parameters on the stroke volume index (SVI) as a marker of cardiac function and on the plasma B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP… (More)
