  1. aRV (right ventricle) systolic dysfunction was defined quantitatively by echocardiographic-derived variable: TAPSE (tricuspid annular plane systolic excursion) and tissue-Doppler-derived tricuspid annulus systolic (S) velocity and myocardial performanace index (MPI) and fractional area change (FAC) according to 2015 ASE-guidelines for cardiac chamber quantification by echocardiography in adults and RV systolic dysfunction was defined with TAPSE < 17 mm, S velocity < 9.5 cm/s, MPI > 0.54 and FAC < 35%
