Calcific aortic stenosis (AS) is the most frequent heart valve disease in developed countries. It is characterized by the progressive fibro-calcific remodelling of valve leaflets that evolve into severe stenosis over years. AS is the third most frequent cardiovascular disease after coronary artery disease and systemic arterial hypertension, with a prevalence of 0.4% in the general population and 1.7% in the population >65 years old.
This Special Issue aims to provide a comprehensive representation of diagnostic tools on aortic stenosis by gathering contributions covering all aspects related to this field. The Special Issue will address fundamental questions on finding a definitive diagnosis on AS presence and degree, and will explore the most recent trials and meta-analysis trials on the associated valvular disease in patients with AS.
