Handheld echocardiography is being proposed as the fifth pillar of bedside physical cardiovascular examination (PE) and is referred to as insonation. Although there is emerging consensus that insonation is superior to PE for diagnosis of various cardiac conditions, superiority has not been consistently demonstrated for various valvular heart disease (VHD) lesions. The objective of this review is to systematically review the accuracy of insonation and auscultation in published literature for detection of common VHD.

Alkaptonuria, a rare disorder of homogentisic acid metabolism, can lead to aortic valvular calcification and stenosis. We present the case of a 71-year-old woman with alkaptonuria-associated aortic st...
The optimal treatment for congenital aortic stenosis (AS) has been debated over the past three decades of experience with both balloon aortic valvuloplasty (BAV) and surgical aortic valvotomy (SAV). W...
The relationship between blood flow characteristics and ascending aortic (AA) dilatation has not been studied in patients with a tricuspid aortic valve (TAV) without aortic stenosis.
The impact of aortic valvular resistance (VR) on the degree of post-transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) aortic regurgitation (AR) remains unclear. The objective of the study was to investiga...
Aortic valve stenosis (AVS) is the most frequent valvular disease. The severity of the obstruction of the left ventricle (LV) is essentially analyzed today by echocardiography Doppler, whi...
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...
Aortic stenosis is the most common valvulopathy in Western countries. Cardiac EchoDoppler is the reference method for assessment of aortic stenosis and provides prognostic elements. Howeve...
The purpose of this study is to assess the effects of rosuvastatin compared to usual care in patients diagnosed with aortic valvular stenosis. Patients must have a diagnosis of mild to mo...
Aortic valve stenosis (AVS) is becoming more and more frequent with the aging, which has brought a heavy burden to the world. However, the prevalence and prognosis of valvular heart diseas...
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 above 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.
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.
