Figure 1: Echocardiographic parasternal short-axis view at the mid-left ventricle level during end-systole (a) and end-diastole (b), demonstrating an abnormal flattened septum. Eccentricity index is defined as the ratio of D2/D1, where D1 is the LV short-axis diameter perpendicular to the septum and D2 is the left ventricle short-axis diameter parallel to the septum. (a) EITTE = 1.44 and (b) EITTE = 1.44
