Aims To define the natural history and predictors of outcome in mild and moderate aortic stenosis (AS). Methods and results One hundred and seventy-six consecutive asymptomatic patients (73 women, age 58±19 years) with mild to moderate AS (jet velocity 2.5 to 3.9 m/s) were followed for 48±19 months. Haemodynamic progression and clinical outcome was analysed. Event-free survival with end-points defined as death (n=34) or aortic valve surgery (n=33), was 95±2%, 75±3% and 60±5% at 1, 3 and 5 years… CONTINUE READING
