Table 2 Thickness of the septum and diameter of the ventricular cavity

From: Cardiac hypertrophy and insulin therapy in a pre-term newborn: is there a relationship?

Thickness: mm Z score
• Interventricular septum (diastolic) 5.5 +  2.52
• Interventricular septum (systolic) 6.4 +  2.49
• Free wall - posterior left ventricular wall (diastolic) 4.7 + 3.54
• Free wall -posterior left ventricular wall (systolic) 0.65 + 2.38
Diameter:
• Left ventricular end diastolic 16.5 +  1.35
• Left ventriclular end systolic 0.87 - 0.64
