Vidhu Anand, Litan Yang, Sushil Allen Luis, Ratnasari Padang, Hector I Michelena, Julie L Tsay, Ramila A Mehta, Christopher G Scott, Sorin V Pislaru, Rick A Nishimura, Patricia A Pellikka,

<h4>Background</h4>Aortic regurgitation (AR) is a common valvular lesion associated with increased mortality once the left ventricle enlarges significantly or develops systolic dysfunction (ejection fraction < 50%). Valve guidelines recommend aortic valve repair or replacement (AVR) for left ventricular (LV) linear end-systolic dimension ≥ 50 mm or end-diastolic dimension ≥ 65 mm. However, chamber quantification guidelines recommend using LV ... Read more >>
