Figure 1: Echocardiographic and morphometric assessment of post-MI remodeling. (A) Left ventricular end diastolic diameter (mm) six weeks post- MI: Increased EDD in MI animals, SiNi Tang treated animals show reduced EDD. (B) Fractional shortening six weeks post-MI: Significantly reduced FS in MI animals. Animals treated with SiNiTang (MI+T) show increased FS compared to MI. (C) No differences between MI groups was observed in heart weight to bodyweight ratio as index for hypertrophy. *: p<0.05; **: p<0.01.
