In patients with severe aortic stenosis, aortic valve replacement (AVR) should aim to implant a prosthesis of adequate size to effectively eliminate left ventricular obstruction and avoid the risk of patient–prosthesis mismatch (PPM). PPM has been demonstrated to be associated with increased mortality, decreased exercise tolerance, and reduced left ventricular mass regression after AVR for aortic stenosis.

Abstract

In patients with severe aortic stenosis, aortic valve replacement (AVR) should aim to implant a prosthesis of adequate size to effectively eliminate left ventricular obstruction and avoid the risk of patient–prosthesis mismatch (PPM). PPM has been demonstrated to be associated with increased mortality, decreased exercise tolerance, and reduced left ventricular mass regression after AVR for aortic stenosis.
