Systematic Echocardiographic Assessment of Aortic Regurgitation—What Should the Surgeon Know for Aortic Valve Repair?
This keynote lecture highlights the need for a standardized prepump intraoperative echocardiology protocol in order to provide a surgeon and their team with a roadmap as to what techniques may be applied for an effective repair of the aortic valve. The authors conclude that such a protocol is essential in enhancing the heart team’s approach by providing a common language between surgeons and echocardiologists, which they hope will ultimately increase aortic valve repairs for select patients in expert centers.
