Hemodynamic characterization of aortic stenosis states.
Hemodynamic Characterization of Aortic Stenosis States
Aortic stenosis (AS) has become an increasingly prevalent clinical condition, as a result of the "greying of the population", the widespread application of sophisticated diagnostic tools including non-invasive imaging and invasive techniques, and the advent of minimally invasive surgical and percutaneous valve therapies. The diagnosis of severe AS traditionally has relied on the assessment of the mean transvalvular gradient (ΔP
