Angiotensin-converting enzyme polymorphisms and their potential impact on left ventricular myocardial geometry after aortic valve surgery.

Abstract

BACKGROUND AND AIM OF THE STUDY Genetic variants of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) cascade may influence left ventricular myocardial mass (LVMM) regression after aortic valve surgery. Postoperative long-term changes in LV indices were investigated in patients with asymptomatic aortic regurgitation (AR) and symptomatic aortic stenosis (AS) and… (More)
