Effects of valve substitute on changes in left ventricular function and hypertrophy after aortic valve replacement.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Residual left ventricular hypertrophy adversely affects long-term outcome after aortic valve replacement. A stentless biological valve in the aortic position has been shown to offer a better hemodynamic profile than a stented one. However, it remains to be defined whether this difference is translated into inter-mediate-term effects on left ventricular structure and function. METHODS: One hundred thirty-seven patients receiving single aortic valve replacement (52 with concomitant ...
