OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to define the link between aortic regurgitation (AR) quantitation and clinical outcome in asymptomatic patients with AR. BACKGROUND Quantitative American Society of Echocardiography (QASE) thresholds are recommended for AR assessment, but impact on clinical outcome is unknown. METHODS We prospectively enrolled (1991 to 2003) 251 asymptomatic patients (age 60 +/- 17 years) with isolated AR and ejection fraction > or =50% with quantified AR and left… CONTINUE READING
