5 Hz probe. All patients were examined in the left lateral recumbent position using standard parasternal, long-axis, shortaxis, and apical views. M-mode recordings were obtained, and left ventricular diastolic diameter, as well as septal and posterior wall thickness were measured. Left ventricular mass index (LVMI) was obtained by dividing the left ventricular mass by body surface area. Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) was defined as an LVMI >110 g/m2 for females and >134 g/m2 for males.
