To determine whether a ventricular (LV) end-systolic dimension (ESD) greater than or equal to 55 mm and LV left fractional shortening less than 25% are risk factors for aortic valve replacement (AVR) in patients with aortic insufficiency, we analyzed the clinical course and M-mode echocardiograms in 47 consecutive patients who underwent AVR for isolated symptomatic AI. Group 1 patients (n = 27) had a preoperative ESD less than 55 mm (mean 44 mm, range 30-52 mm) and group 2 patients (n = 20) had… CONTINUE READING
