  • This table shows the results of the multivariable analyses for rest RVLS and stress RVLS. Multivariable models were stratified for the type of treatment (AVR vs conservative).

  • Cohort with rest RVLS: *Model #1 was adjusted for age, previous MI, projected AVA and LVEF. †Model #2 was adjusted for age, previous MI, projected AVA and LVLS.

  • Cohort with stress RVLS. *Model #1 was adjusted for age, projected AVA and LVEF. †Model #2 was Model #1 with further adjustment for rest RVLS.

  • AVA, aortic valve area; AVR, aortic valve replacement; LVEF, left ventricular ejection fraction; LVLS, left ventricular global longitudinal strain; MI, myocardial infarction; RVLS, right ventricular longitudinal strain.
