OBJECTIVES This study sought to assess the diagnostic implications of the flow dependence of Doppler echocardiographic indexes of aortic valve stenosis. BACKGROUND Although valve area has been shown to change with alterations in flow rate, the diagnostic consequences of this phenomenon remain unknown. Valve resistance has been suggested as a more stable… CONTINUE READING
