Unicuspid aortic valve (UAV) is a rare congenital anomaly of aorta associated with a faster progress of valvular dysfunction, aortic dilatation and with necessity for more frequent controls and precis...
Micro-crystals of calcium phosphate have been detected on the aortic valve of patients with aortic stenosis using scanning electron microscopy. It is not known whether crystalisation is specific to he...
Coronary artery disease and aortic stenosis frequently coexist. The pathophysiology of both conditions is similar where atherosclerosis is the hallmark feature. Risk factors for aortic stenosis are al...
Aortic valve stenosis (AVS) affects a significant percentage of our elderly population and younger subjects with familial hypercholesterolemia. Lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] has been associated with AVS in r...
Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is the preferred option for high-risk patients with severe aortic stenosis. The preferred access for TAVR is transfemoral (TF). Alternatives include the t...
There is evidence that the degenerative changes leading to aortic stenosis are caused by a chronic inflammatory process. Furthermore the development of aortic stenosis is partially depende...
Aortic stenosis is a common heart valve disease and due to the growing elderly population the prevalence is increasing. The disease is progressive with increasing calcification of the valv...
Aortic stenosis is a major cause of morbidity around the world. Progressive aortic stenosis leads to cardiac hypertrophy as a compensatory response. A maladaptive response may lead to hear...
This study aims to evaluate whether baseline 18F-sodium fluoride uptake activity at aortic valve could predict aortic stenosis progression in moderate aortic stenosis. Patients with moder...
Prospective cohort study to test the hypothesis that patients identified with severe aortic stenosis are under-diagnosed and under-treated. Such patients shall be identified by auscultatio...
A pathological constriction that can occur above (supravalvular stenosis), below (subvalvular stenosis), or at the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
A pathological constriction occurring in the region below the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
A pathological constriction occurring in the region above the AORTIC VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
Surgical treatment for severe AORTIC VALVE STENOSIS. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is used as an alternative option in patients who are deemed at high risk or inoperable for traditional open-heart surgery.
A type of constriction that is caused by the presence of a fibrous ring (discrete type) below the AORTIC VALVE, anywhere between the aortic valve and the MITRAL VALVE. It is characterized by restricted outflow from the LEFT VENTRICLE into the AORTA.
