Table 2 Comparison of global left ventricular strain

From: Left ventricular myocardial deformation assessment in asymptomatic patients with recently diagnosed sarcoidosis of the respiratory tract and/or extrapulmonary sarcoidosis

  Sarcoidosis n = 110 Control group n = 22 p value
GLS (%) − 13.9 ± 3.1 − 14.2 ± 2.5 0.68
GCS (%) − 23.4 ± 4.0 − 22.2 ± 2.9 0.16
GRS (%) 53.4 ± 13.5 51.2 ± 13.6 0.49
  1. Variables with the Gaussian distribution are expressed as the mean ± standard deviation
  2. GLS global longitudinal strain, GCS global circumferential strain, GRS global radial strain
