Aortic root (AR) dimension (ARD) at the Valsalva sinuses has been associated with incident cardiovascular (CV) events in population-based studies, but this effect could be due to the association with increased left ventricular (LV) mass.

Abstract

Aortic root (AR) dimension (ARD) at the Valsalva sinuses has been associated with incident cardiovascular (CV) events in population-based studies, but this effect could be due to the association with increased left ventricular (LV) mass. There is also uncertainty on how to define clear-cut AR dilatation. Thus, we analyzed the Campania Salute Network (CSN) registry to (i) establish criteria for evaluation of ARD, (ii) propose cut-points for AR dilatation, and (iii) determine whether AR dilatation has prognostic value independent of LV hypertrophy (LVH).
