CADO treatment improves segmental contractile function in remote regions after MI. The evolution of segmental contractility in the three experimental groups is expressed as the change from 48 h to 1 and 2 months of the percentage of myocardial thickening. (A) Global evolution of segmental contractility (i.e. whole heart). (B, C) Evolution of segmental contractility after 1 and 2 months according to segment location (MI, border zone or remote area). Data are adjusted mean ± SEM. *p < 0.01; **p < 0.001.
