  • Values are mean±SD or n (%) of patients.

  • * Fisher's exact test.

  • Septal wall thickness were obtained from M mode, parasternal short axis view (appropriate M-Mode recordings could not be obtained in all patients).

  • CCS, Canadian Cardiovascular Society; LV, left ventricular (enddiastolic diameter from the apical four-chamber view; NYHA, New York Heart Association; sPAP, systolic pulmonary artery pressure.
