OBJECTIVES This study sought to determine the outcome of aortic valve replacement for aortic regurgitation complicated by extreme left ventricular dilation. BACKGROUND Aortic valve replacement has been recommended in aortic regurgitation with extreme left ventricular dilation (diastolic dimension >/= 80 mm), but extreme left ventricular dilation raises concern about irreversible left ventricular dysfunction. METHODS Thirty-one patients with a preoperative echocardiographic diastolic… CONTINUE READING
