The aim of this study was to evaluate whether left ventricular (LV) systolic strain in children and young adults with congenital aortic stenosis (AS) and preserved ejection fraction was different from normal subjects and to determine whether any alterations in strain were related to myocardial fibrosis. In this retrospective study, 29 patients with congenital AS with a median age of 15.3 years (range 1.7 to 23.7), highest lifetime AS peak Doppler gradient of 73 mm Hg (22 to 110), most recent AS… CONTINUE READING
