Pre- and postoperative noninvasive assessment of left ventricular architecture should provide the reversibility of myocardial adaptation of the left ventricle accompanying chronic volume overload. Less well documented are the associated alterations of the extent and the pattern of left ventricular architecture after valve replacement in aortic regurgitation (AR) during the follow-up period. To assess changes in left ventricular (LV) cross-sectional diameter, wall thickness, and LV mass index, echocardiographic studies were performed in 40 patients before and three-and-a-half months after aortic valve replacement (AVR) for isolated chronic AR. Diastolic LV dimension (6.7±0.9 to 4.9±0.9cm, p2, p
