Predictors of Outcome in Severe, Asymptomatic Aortic Stenosis

Whether to perform valve replacement in patients with asymptomatic but severe aortic stenosis is controversial. Therefore, we studied the natural history of this condition to identify predictors of outcome.

Myocardial Viability and Survival in Ischemic Left Ventricular Dysfunction

The assessment of myocardial viability has been used to identify patients with coronary artery disease and left ventricular dysfunction in whom coronary-artery bypass grafting (CABG) will provide a survival benefit. However, the efficacy of this approach is uncertain.

Late prognostic value of flow-mediated dilation in the brachial artery of patients with chest pain


Outcome of Watchful Waiting in Asymptomatic Severe Mitral Regurgitation

The management of asymptomatic severe mitral regurgitation remains controversial. The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of a watchful waiting strategy in which patients are referred to surgery when symptoms occur or when asymptomatic patients develop left ventricular (LV) enlargement, LV dysfunction, pulmonary hypertension, or recurrent atrial fibrillation.


Natriuretic Peptides Predict Symptom-Free Survival and Postoperative Outcome in Severe Aortic Stenosis

The prognostic value of natriuretic peptides in aortic stenosis (AS) remains unknown.
