  1. SrLE Early diastolic longitudinal strain rate, SrLA Late diastolic longitudinal strain rate, SrCE Early diastolic circumferential strain rate, SrCA Late diastolic circumferential strain rate, SrRE Early diastolic radial strain rate, SrRA Late diastolic radial strain rate. Different superscripts indicate significant (P < 0.05) differences between groups (a, b). Variables with normal distribution are reported as mean ± standard deviation. Variables with non-normal distribution are reported as median (range)
