- Valve repair for aortic insufficiency: surgical classification and techniques. [Journal Article]Eur J Cardiothorac Surg. 1997 Feb; 11(2):258-65.EJ
- CONCLUSIONS: Aortic valve repair provides a low risk option with satisfactory intermediate-term results for the treatment of aortic insufficiency in appropriately selected patients. Patient and procedure selection may be based upon the echocardiographic anatomy of the aortic valve, and a comparative risk benefit appraisal with valve replacement.
