Demographic data, MRI results such as, right ventricular end diastolic volume, right ventricular end systolic volume, systolic and diastolic indexes noted. Moreover, QRS duration and the patients' cardiac functional class were evaluated immediately before and 6 months after the surgery."n"nResults: From 51 patients, 27.5% were female and 72.5% were male. The mean age of participants was 23.48 (SD=5.82) years. Functional class changes were statistically different (P
