  • IMPORTANCE Aortic stenosis is the most common form of valvular heart disease. Progression of aortic stenosis is very slow and highly variable. Decisions about when to perform valve surgery are made by subjective assessment of patient symptoms and objective measures of the valve and ventricular function by transthoracic echocardiography. OBJECTIVE To review current concepts regarding the development, progression, and assessment of aortic stenosis; the appropriate monitoring intervals for… CONTINUE READING
