Relationships between MGS and clinical parameters in 16 LAM patients without pulmonary lymphatic congestion. A, VC %pred; B, FEV1%pred; C, FEV1/FVC; D, DLco %pred; and E, log (VEGF-D). MGS was significantly negatively correlated with DLco %pred (D). Abbreviations: DLco, diffusing capacity of carbon monoxide; FEV1, forced expiratory volume in 1 s; FVC, forced vital capacity; LAM, lymphangioleiomyomatosis; log (VEGF-D), logarithmic value of serum vascular endothelial growth factor-D (pg/ml); MGS, modified Goddard score; VC, vital capacity; %pred, percentage of the predicted value
