Aortic stenosis is the most common type of valvular heart disease. Aortic stenosis is characterized both by progressive valve narrowing and the left ventricular remodeling response that ensues. In aor...
The timing and indications for surgical intervention in asymptomatic patients with severe aortic stenosis remain controversial.
Mitral stenosis frequently coexists in patients with severe aortic stenosis. Mitral stenosis severity evaluation is challenging in the setting of combined aortic stenosis and mitral stenosis because o...
New insights into the pathophysiology and natural history of patients with aortic stenosis, coupled with advances in diagnostic imaging and the dramatic evolution of transcatheter aortic valve replace...
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 timing of surgical intervention remains controversial in asymptomatic patients with very severe aortic stenosis. The investigators therefore try to compare long-term clinical o...
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 the most common heart valve disease requiring intervention in high income countries. It is characterised by progressive valvular thickening, and restriction as well is h...
For fetuses with severe aortic stenosis, in utero balloon aortic valvuloplasty may improve fetal growth of left heart structures and thus improve potential for biventricular repair strateg...
The purpose of this retrospective, observational study is to compare the profit of BAV and TAVI in different subtypes of serve aortic stenosis.
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.
