Longitudinal study of the profile and predictors of left ventricular mass regression after stentless aortic valve replacement.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term profile and determine the factors that would influence the effect and rate of ventricular mass regression with time after aortic valve replacement with a stentless or a homograft valve. METHODS: We studied 300 patients during a 10-year period with at least a year of follow-up with a total of 1,273 serial echocardiographic measurements. Left ventricular mass was calculated from M-mode recordings and indexed to body surface area. L...
