Abstract: In patients with chronic, hemodynamically significant aortic
regurgitation (AR), a long period of left ventricular remodeling
usually occurs prior to the development of symptoms or left ventricular
dysfunction. The value of cardiopulmonary exercise testing in patients
with asymptomatic AR is not established.
