Long Term Outcomes after Aortic Valve Surgery in Patients with Aortic Regurgitation

Cleveland Clinic cardiologist Dr. Milind Desai discusses a paper published in JACC Imaging studying 865 patients who underwent aortic valve surgery with severe aortic regurgitation. Baseline ejection fraction and LV strain were studied pre-procedure and post procedure to look at the impact of these values and overall mortality. Dr. Desai discusses the findings of the study and implications for future evaluation of patients with aortic regurgitation. Study can be reviewed in JACC Imaging,
