OBJECTIVE Several studies have recently reported an association between aortic valve calcification and atherosclerosis of the cardiovascular system, suggesting that aortic valve calcification might represent an atherosclerosis-like process. Hence the aim of the present study was to determine whether there is a similar association between aortic stenosis and aortic atheromas. METHODS We evaluated the records and echocardiographic videotapes of 91 consecutive patients with severe aortic… CONTINUE READING
