Aortic Valve 1: Anatomy and Aortic Stenosis

Transesophageal imaging of the aortic valve is often more difficult than imaging of the mitral valve, in part due to the anatomy of the aortic valve. This course reviews aortic valve anatomy and provides an overview of aortic stenosis, which is present in most patients who are in the operating room for an aortic valve replacement.

You will learn:

  • Aortic valve anatomy
  • Aortic stenosis
