The severity of aortic regurgitation, as assessed by the radionuclide regurgitant index and Fourier amplitude ratio, was compared in 29 patients. Both methods were highly reproducible and agreed in patients with mild-tomoderate regurgitation. The regurgitant index fell with exercise. This change showed a linear relationship with heart rate, allowing the regurgitant index to be corrected for heart rate. There was general agreement between the radionuclide method and echocardiography, but the… CONTINUE READING
