By Amr E. Abbas

​With the appearance of much less invasive remedies for aortic stenosis together with percutaneous and apical substitute, extra sufferers are being provided this expertise. As such, choosing the genuine severity of aortic stenosis is turning into paramount. Many scientific situations happen the place the realm and gradient estimates of severity don't fit. This e-book will current case by way of case examples of other sufferers with a large choice of aortic stenosis. it's going to help cardiologists in opting for sufferers with precise aortic stenosis who may gain advantage from valve alternative. it is going to additionally spotlight the position and creation of latest know-how because the position of CTA, MRI, and 3D echo for analysis and TAVR and mini surgical procedure for treatment​. The viewers will diversity from scientific cardiologists, imaging cardiologists and interventionalists alike.
