Until recently the hemodynamic severity of valvular aortic stenosis (AS) was evaluated only by cardiac catheterization. Now, Doppler echocardiography allows a noninvasive and accurate assessment of AS severity and can be used to study its progression with time. The progression of AS was assessed during a follow-up period of 6 to 45 months (mean 18) by serial Doppler examinations in 45 adult patients (21 men and 24 women, mean age 72 +/- 10 years) with isolated AS. The following parameters were… CONTINUE READING
