Left ventricular filling dynamics were investigated in 24 patients with aortic stenosis (AS). Biplane cineangiography was performed with simultaneous micromanometry in these 24 patients and in six control subjects. Twelve of the patients with AS had moderate hypertrophy with a left ventricular muscle mass index of less than 180 g/m2 (ASI group) and 12 had severe hypertrophy with an index of 180 g/m2 or more (AS2 group). Filling dynamics were also evaluated postoperatively in eight patients in… CONTINUE READING
