In a study of 148 patients with aortic valvular disease, the extent of valvular calcific deposits noted fluoroscopically or on lateral chest radiograph correlated positively with the peak systolic pressure gradient across the aortic valve in those with predominant stenosis (9).
Atherosclerotic plaques in the cusps themselves appear to play a role in the genesis of aortic valvular sclerosis and eventually stenosis, and evidence is accumulating that reducing atherosclerotic risk factors delays not only arterial disease but the onset and progression of aortic valvular disease (14, 15).
