Effects of valve replacement on left ventricular function in patients with aortic regurgitation and severe ventricular disease

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Longstanding aortic regurgitation (AR) can result in left ventricular (LV) dysfunction that may reverse after aortic valve replacement (AVR). Stentless valves may result in a more rapid recovery in function due to a more physiological flow and lower outflow resistance.
