Table 2. Echocardiographic analysis at 1week post IR. HR, heart rate; IVS, interventricular septal thickness in diastole; PW, posterior wall thickness in diastole; LV diastolic D, left ventricle diastolic dimension; LV systolic D, left ventricle systolic dimension; LVEDV, LV end diastolic volume; LVESV, LV end systolic volume; EF, ejection fraction; FS, fractional shortening. Values represent mean SEM. *p<0.05, **p < 0.01, **p < 0.001 (compared with Saline)
