BACKGROUND Identification of the subset females with Turner syndrome who face especially high risk of aortic dissection is difficult, and more optimal risk assessment is pivotal in order to improve outcomes. This study aimed to provide comprehensive, dynamic mathematical models of aortic disease in Turner syndrome by use of cardiovascular magnetic resonance (CMR). METHODS A prospective framework of long-term aortic follow-up was used, which comprised diameters of the thoracic aorta… CONTINUE READING
