Aortic Valve Disease

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Echocardiography plays an important role in the diagnosis and management of aortic valve disease with the introduction of transcatheter aortic valve replacement greatly expanding its role in guiding treatment. Both transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) and transesophageal echocardiography (TEE) and, increasingly, three-dimensional techniques are essential tools. This chapter covers the use of echocardiography in the comprehensive evaluation of the aortic valve, with the objectives of assessing the nature, severity and etiology of valve dysfunction (stenosis and/or regurgitation), the anatomic changes responsible for this dysfunction, and, where possible, the disease process that has resulted in these anatomic changes. Importantly, echo also provides important information concerning secondary changes in cardiac anatomy and function, notably those of the left ventricle.
