Multivariable analysis including baseline clinical parameters, conventional echocardiographic measurements, Duke score, and layer-specific strain measurements revealed epicardial [odds ratio 1.19 (P = 0.048)] and mid-myocardial [odds ratio 1.16 (P = 0.047)] global longitudinal strain (GLS) as the only independent predictors of CAD. In direct comparison, epicardial and mid-myocardial GLS had a significantly higher diagnostic performance compared to endocardial GLS (P = 0.038 and P = 0.031, respectively). In conclusion, layer-specific GLS from 2DSTE at rest was significantly impaired in patients with significant CAD. In addition, epicardial and mid-myocardial GLS were independent predictors of CAD.",
