Reliability of echo cardiography in diagnosing and quantitating valvular aortic stenosis



Reliability of echo cardiography in diagnosing and quantitating valvular aortic stenosis



Journal of Cardiovascular Medicine 5(4): 391-395, 399, 404-405, 409-410



Though there is no question of echocardiography's value in identifying patients with aortic valve disease, there have been questions about its clinical utility in quantifying the severity of stenosis because technical problems in certain age groups and associated heart diseases may cause errors. This review provides a perspective on what you can, and cannot, learn in making use of this important tool for noninvasive diagnosis.
