• Global left ventricular load in asymptomatic aortic stenosis: covariates and prognostic implication (the SEAS trial) 

      Rieck, Åshild Elseth; Gerdts, Eva; Lønnebakken, Mai Tone; Bahlmann, Edda; Cioffi, Giovanni; Gohlke-Bärwolf, Christa; Ray, Simon; Cramariuc, Dana (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2012-11-05)
      Introduction: Valvuloarterial impedance (Zva) is a measure of global (combined valvular and arterial) load opposing left ventricular (LV) ejection in aortic stenosis (AS). The present study identified covariates and tested ...
    • Myocardial function in aortic stenosis - insights from radial multilayer Doppler strain 

      Cramariuc, Dana; Gerdts, Eva; Hjertaas, Johannes Just; Cramariuc, Alexandru; Davidsen, Einar Skulstad; Matre, Knut (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-02-19)
      Background Left ventricular (LV) radial tissue Doppler imaging (TDI) strain increases gradually from the subepicardial to the subendocardial layer in healthy individuals. A speckle tracking echocardiography study suggested ...
    • Relation of Left Ventricular Mass to Prognosis in Initially Asymptomatic Mild to Moderate Aortic Valve Stenosis 

      Gerdts, Eva; Rossebø, Anne Bjørhovde; Pedersen, Terje Rolf; Cioffi, Giovanni; Lønnebakken, Mai Tone; Cramariuc, Dana; Rogge, Barbara; Devereux, Richard B (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      Background—The prognostic importance of left ventricular (LV) mass in nonsevere asymptomatic aortic stenosis has not been documented in a large prospective study. Methods and Results—Cox regression analysis was used to ...
    • Sex differences in cardiovascular outcome during progression of aortic valve stenosis 

      Cramariuc, Dana; Rogge, Barbara; Lønnebakken, Mai Tone; Boman, Kurt; Bahlmann, Edda; Gohlke-Bärwolf, Christa; Chambers, John B.; Pedersen, Terje Rolf; Gerdts, Eva (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      Objective: Women with severe aortic valve stenosis (AS) have better LV systolic function and more concentric LV geometry than their male counterparts. However, sex differences in cardiovascular (CV) outcome during progression ...
