BACKGROUND The influence of preoperative clinic, hemodynamic, and surgical procedures on extended long-term prognosis after valve replacement for chronic aortic regurgitation is still unclear. METHODS AND RESULTS One hundred ninety-two patients (mean age, 44 years) who underwent valve replacement for chronic aortic regurgitation between 1970 and 1983 were followed for 13 to 26 years (mean follow-up, 13.8 years; surviving patients, 18.7 years).
