Table 5 Multivariate analysis for the predictors of systolic and diastolic function of LV in nephrotic syndrome

From: Hypoalbuminemia linked to myocardial dysfunction in recent-onset nephrotic syndrome: a cross-sectional case control 3DSTE study

  LV GLS (%) LV E/e′

  1. Abbreviations: dL deciliter, E/e′ ratio of diastolic function of LV; ratio of early transmitral inflow to average early diastolic velocities of mitral annulus and basal septum, g gram, GLS Global longitudinal strain, LV Left ventricle, mg milligram, mmHg millimeter mercury, P Pearson’s coefficient of statistical significance, R correlation coefficient
  2. P < 0.05 was considered statistically significant
