  • OBJECTIVES This study was conceived to describe the evolution of aortic dimensions in patients with moderate post-stenotic ascending aorta dilation (50 to 59 mm) submitted to aortic valve replacement (AVR) alone. BACKGROUND The appropriate treatment of post-stenotic ascending aorta dilation has been poorly investigated. METHODS Ninety-three patients affected by severe isolated calcific aortic valve stenosis in the tricuspid aortic valve accompanied by moderate dilation of the ascending… CONTINUE READING
