A large retrospective cohort study supports the need for sex-specific evaluation and management of patients even in the early stages of aortic stenosis.
A desktop-sized cardiac modeling system made of pliable, 3D-printed materials can be customized to accurately mimic the hydrodynamics of individual patients’ aortic stenosis, ventricular remodeling and diastolic dysfunction.
A novel soft robotic device designed to fit around the ascending aorta promises to enable high-fidelity simulation of the hemodynamics and biomechanics of aortic stenosis and congenital valve disease.
A large observational study suggests that supplemental calcium exerts a detrimental effect in patients over age 60 with aortic stenosis, especially in those not undergoing aortic valve replacement.

Three of our valve disease experts reflect on key changes and developments related to aortic valve disease in the new guideline update.
A novel technique that implants the balloon-expandable valve just 1.5 mm under the noncoronary cusp improves outcomes in transcatheter aortic valve replacement, finds a new Cleveland Clinic study.
Among patients 55 or younger, TAVR use is growing but carries a higher risk of stroke than surgical aortic valve replacement, finds an STS database analysis. We explore evolving options for AVR in younger patients.
Mortality differs from state to state and between nonwhite and white demographic groups, finds a new analysis of nationwide data since 2008.
A pooling of data from several PARTNER trials shows that chronic kidney disease was highly prevalent and that TAVR was associated with stable or improved kidney function in a large majority of cases.
Findings of better post-TAVR survival in mixed aortic valve disease compared with pure aortic stenosis suggest that hearts already exposed to aortic regurgitation may better tolerate mild post-TAVR regurgitation.
