  • Values expressed as mean±SD for normally distributed variables and median (IQR) for non-normally distributed variables.

  • *The patient who had increased pericardiac effusion postoperatively was excluded.

  • †Non-normally distributed variables.

  • .CI, cardiac index; CURB, combined use of radiofrequency ablation and balloon dilation; LVEDP, left ventricular end diastolic pressure; MPAP, mean pulmonary artery pressure; MRAP, mean right atrial pressure; PVR, pulmonary vascular resistance; SAOP, systolic aortic pressure; SatO2, arterial oxygen saturation; SPAP, systolic pulmonary artery pressure.
