eGFR – estimated glomerular filtration rate; LAD – left atrial anteroposterior diameter; LVEDD – left ventricular end-diastolic diameter; LVESD – left ventricular end-systolic diameter; LVPWT – left ventricular posterior wall thickness; RVAWT – right ventricular anterior wall thickness; RVEDD – right ventricular end-diastolic diameter; PAD – pulmonary artery diameter; LVEF – left ventricular ejection fraction. Data are means±standard deviation (SD).
