Echocardiographic parameters: LV EF = left ventricular ejection fraction = flow velocity during early diastolic filling, = flow velocity during atrial contraction, late diastolic filling, = wave/ wave ratio, dur = duration of mitral -wave, dur = duration of retrograde a-wave in pulmonary venous flow, = ratio between the duration of mitral -wave and duration of -wave in pulmonary venous flow, = ratio between systolic and diastolic pulmonary venous flow, = mitral annulus systolic tissue velocity, = early mitral annulus diastolic tissue velocity, = ratio in early mitral diastolic flow and early mitral annulus diastolic tissue velocity, NT-proBNP = amino terminal pro brain natriuretic peptide, NS-statistically nonsignificant, and statistically borderline values.
