Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,


Aortic stenosis is the most common primary valve lesion requiring surgery or transcatheter intervention in Europe and North America. Its prevalence is rising rapidly because of the ageing population. An increasing number of patients are currently undergoing surgical or transcatheter replacement procedures. New European guidelines for the management of valvular heart disease have just been published, with specific recommendations. However, there are still many challenging aspects and open questions in the evaluation and management of patients with aortic stenosis. This includes, but is not restricted to, gender differences in valve pathology and cardiac remodeling, the value of advanced cardiac imaging techniques for diagnosis and risk stratification, the role of invasive hemodynamics for risk stratification, the decision making about the optimal timing of valve replacement, the optimal selection of patients undergoing transcatheter or surgical valve replacement, and the optimal management of patients with concomitant coronary artery disease. 

The aim of this Special Issue is the attract time reviews and original articles on these or other hot topics related to aortic stenosis.
