The red part represents the arrangement of myocardial tissue, and the blue part represents myocardial collagen deposition (A: magnification ×40). (C) Cardiac function was evaluated by M-mode echocardiography (a: Control group, b: PTU group, c: PTU+H2S group, d: H2S group). PTU, propylthiouracil. *p < 0.05 compared with Control group; #p < 0.05 compared with PTU group.
