The rate of progression of aortic stenosis (AS) in adults is variable. To determine whether clinical or echocardiographic variables are associated with more rapid hemodynamic progression, we identified 91 AS patients (initial valve area < or = 2.0 cm2) with 2 technically adequate studies separated by > or = 6 months. From the first study, left ventricular dimensions and AS severity were measured by standard Doppler-echocardiographic methods. Each aortic valve was graded for severity of… CONTINUE READING
