Abstract: In order to evaluate the short- and long-term effects of aortic valve replacement on the pattern of left ventricular inflow velocity, pulsed wave Doppler analysis was performed in 20 patients with isolated aortic stenosis. Complementary, left ventricular wall thickness was measured, using M-mode echocardiography. One week after operation, left ventricular wall thickness is not changed significantly. The Doppler findings suggest some improvement of left ventricular filling. Six months and 1 year postoperatively, there is a significant, but incomplete regression of left ventricular hypertrophy. Left ventricular filling improved only partially, compared to preoperatively.
