The qualitative variables were expressed in percentage, and the associations between them were analyzed using Chi-square test ( ), . The percentage of fibrosis in the cardiac tissue was analyzed using ANOVA test followed by Tukey’s multiple comparison test. *Significant differences among Col group versus Col/Col versus Col/Y versus control group.
