Left ventricular remodelling and improvement in Freestyle stentless valve haemodynamics.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: To assess how left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy, geometry and function change after stentless aortic valve replacement for aortic stenosis, and to elucidate the physiological mechanism of the improvement in stentless valve haemodynamics. METHODS: 81 patients with aortic stenosis (age 75 +/- 6 years, 47 male) underwent aortic valve replacement (plus CABG in 33 patients) with a Freestyle stentless porcine valve (mean size 23 +/- 2 mm). They were prospectively investigated by Doppler ...
