Abstract: Debate exists regarding selection of the prosthesis type most likely to maximize early left ventricular (LV) mass regression after aortic valve replacement (AVR) for stenotic valvular disease. The aim of this study was to compare the degree of LV mass regression measured by MRI 6 months after prospectively randomized valve implantation for two biological prostheses, stented and stentless, and for two mechanical valves, tilting disc and bileaflet.
