BACKGROUND Surgical techniques for aortic valve (AV) repair are directed toward restoring normal structural relationships in the aortic root and rely on detailed assessment of root and valve anatomy. Noninvasive three-dimensional (3D) imaging and modeling may assist in patient selection and operative planning. METHODS Transesophageal real-time 3D echocardiographic images of 5 patients with normal AVs were acquired. The aortic root and the annulus were manually segmented at end diastole using… CONTINUE READING
