Abstract

With the resurgence in popularity of aortic valve (AV) repair, detailed anatomical information of the AV has become invaluable for surgical decision making as well as for evaluation of success postrepair. Perioperative 3-dimensional echocardiography is optimally suited to assist in repair planning. The volumetric nature of the 3-dimensional data allows accurate derivation of qualitative and quantitative measurements. A uniform approach to imaging and description of echocardiographic AV anatomy is essential to facilitate communication across specialties.
