BACKGROUND We examined the relationships of left ventricular (LV) contractile state with LV geometry and hypertrophy in patients with aortic valve disease, and investigated the reversibility of LV hypertrophy and contractility following aortic valve replacement. METHODS Preoperative data from quantitative cineangiography and pressure measurements in 132 patients with chronic aortic valve disease, of whom 82 aortic regurgitation (AR), 41 aortic stenosis (AS), and 9 had mixed stenosis and… CONTINUE READING
