Abstract

Background Aortic stenosis is one of the most commonly encountered valvular pathology requiring surgery in developed countries. There are similarities between risk factors for coronary atherosclerosis and the development of aortic stenosis. We designed a retrospective study, evaluated the lipid profile and previous echocardiographic recordings of patients with aortic stenosis, and searched the association of rate of progression and lipid profile.
