BACKGROUND Patients with low left ventricular ejection fractions and low-flow, low-gradient aortic stenosis (AS) represent a challenging cohort with high morbidity and mortality. The prevalence and clinical impact of right ventricular dysfunction (RVD) on risk stratification and prognosis in these patients is unknown. METHODS A retrospective analysis was performed of 65 patients with low-flow, low-gradient AS who underwent low-dose dobutamine stress echocardiography to determine AS severity… CONTINUE READING
