  • Cox proportional hazard model of the relationship between LVEF recovery at 2 years and mortality during follow. For each variable, the HR for mortality during follow-up after adjusting for all other listed variables is indicated. 95% CI for the HR is reported in parentheses. Medical therapy vs CABG refers to patients randomised to medical therapy alone or to CABG plus medical therapy. OMT refers to patient on OMT at 4 months follow-up.

  • Statistical testing performed using Cox proportional hazard model.

  • BMI, body‚ÄČmass index; CABG, coronary artery bypass graft; OMT, optimal medical therapy.
