Levels of echocardiographic parameters in each group of rats

Groups Number HR (times/min) LVFS (%) LVEF (%)
Control 10 380.20 ± 15.33 42.30 ± 0.95 73.50 ± 0.43
L-Thy 8 520 ± 23.25* 31.82 ± 1.02* 59.53 ± 0.19*
L-Thy + SO2 9 420 ± 13.85# 39.52 ± 2.33# 69.40 ± 1.16#
L-Thy + SO2 + HDX 8 489 ± 19.77& 28.91 ± 2.14& 55.31 ± 3.18&

Values are presented as mean ± standard deviation. HR, heart rate; LVFS, left ventricular fractional shortening; LVEF, left ventricular ejection fraction; L-Thy, levothyroxine; SO2, sulfur dioxide; HDX, hydrogen deuterium exchange. *p < 0.05 vs. control group; #p < 0.05 vs. L-Thy group; &p < 0.05 vs. L-Thy + SO2 group.
