In present study there was a progressive increase in Natriuretic peptide levels with decreasing aortic valve area, but a significant increase in Natriuretic peptide levels in patients with an ejection of <40%, emphasize the important association between LV systolic function and Natriuretic peptide level.
6) Furthermore, NT-proBNP provided additional predictive value to the aortic valve area and LV ejection fraction for the presence of symptoms.
In previous studies, women have had greater impairment of functional status and a poorer exercise capacity than men, despite a similar aortic valve area and greater LV functional shortening.
There was aortic regurgitation with an aortic valve area of 2.

Between induction of anaesthesia and cardiopulmonary bypass, a dedicated anaesthetist completed an echocardiographic study, including measurements of the functional aortic valve area by direct planimetry and equilateral triangle-shaped planimetry of the aortic orifice in mid systole (using the aortic valve short axis view), left ventricular outflow tract aortic valve diameter (using the aortic valve long axis view) and pulmonary valve diameter (using the right ventricular inflow-outflow view), all in triplicate.
Pearson's correlation coefficient was calculated for aortic valve area calculated by USCOM and valve area using direct planimetry (r=0.
For example, factors resulting in transvalvular gradients under- and over-estimating aortic valve areas are interchanged, the text and diagrams incorrectly assert that one should only trace the early filling wave to determine mean transmitral gradients; restricted mitral valve leaflet motion associated with ischaemia is solely ascribed to ischaemic papillary muscles with no mention of the significance of changes in ventricular geometry.
