Clinical characteristics (mean SEM) at 1 w after AMI.

Sham WT Adipoq −/−   P (WT versus Adipoq −/−)

Age (weeks) 0.475
HW (mg) 0.133
HW/TL (g/m) 0.133
LVEDD (mm) 0.713
FS (%)NA 0.315
Infarct size (%)NA 0.193

Morphometric and echocardiographic parameters were not significantly different between WT and Adipoq −/− animals, although absolute values tend to show an increase in infarction size and post-AMI remodeling parameters in Adipoq −/− mice. HW: heart weight; TL: tibia length; LVEDD: left ventricular end-diastolic diameter; FS: fractional shortening; Nppb: natriuretic peptide B; AU: arbitrary units; NA: not available.
