BACKGROUND Aortic valve replacement is recommended in case of symptomatic severe aortic stenosis. This decision is difficult for patients with low-gradient aortic stenosis and severely impaired left ventricular function because of high perioperative mortality in this group. Although aortic valve replacement is usually justified if severe aortic stenosis is… CONTINUE READING
