Table 6 Parameters of RA and RV in device and surgical groups

From: Comparison of the early cardiac electromechanical remodeling following transcatheter and surgical secundum atrial septal defect closure in adults

  Group 1 (device closure)
(n = 15)
  Group 2 (surgical closure)
(n = 15)
 
  Before closure After closure P value Before closure After closure P value
RA maximal volume (mm) 74.53 ± 23.98 46.88 ± 12.77 < 0.001 81.90 ± 30.07 55.38 ± 18.03 < 0.001
RVEDV (mm) 133.33 ± 25.26 87.10 ± 14.08 < 0.001 152.33 ± 52.36 106.60 ± 31.21 < 0.001
  1. RA: right atrium, RVEDV: right ventricle end diastolic volume. Data expressed as frequency (percentage), mean (SD). P value was significant if < 0.05
