Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Aortic insufficiency (or aortic regurgitation) is the reversal of blood flow from the aorta through a malfunctioning aortic valve. Aortic insufficiency is caused by abnormalities of the aortic valve leaflet, aortic annulus and aortic root, which involves congenital abnormality, degeneration, infection, and aortic structure dilatation. Recent progress in medical, surgical and procedural treatment for aortic insufficiency is dramatically changing the clinical scenario in our practice. In this present Special Issue, we aim to explore this evolving practice for aortic insufficiency, which includes incidence, treatment, and prognosis. We also aim to review and compare guidelines for aortic insufficiency. The purpose of this Special Issue is to further scientific discussion on aortic insufficiency and associated diseases, and we strongly encourage authors to submit manuscripts to this Special Issue. All manuscripts need to be original, and appropriate references should be cited in the manuscript.

Original research articles, meta-analyses, and reviews are welcome in this Special Issue. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:

  • Epidemiology, incidence and mortality of aortic insufficiency and associated diseases;
  • Congenital disease, including bicuspid aortic valve and connective tissue disease;
  • Infective endocarditis;
  • Aortic root surgery;
  • Aortic valve repair surgery;
  • Prosthetic valves surgery;
  • Transcatheter procedures;
  • Minimally invasive cardiac surgery;
  • Perioperative and postoperative management;
  • Medical imaging including echocardiography and cardiac MRI.
