Abstract


Aortic valve disease is the most common valvular heart disease in the developed world1.

Primary cause of Aortic valve diseases are age-associated calcific valve changes and inherited or congenital conditions (bicuspid Aortic valve or myxomatous mitral valve disease)2 . 50 cases were studied to evaluate  ECG and chest X-ray of patients with Aortic valve diseases. 31 cases had cardiomegaly, of which  17 cases were of Mixed Aortic Stenosis (AS) + Aortic Regurgitation (AR) ( 34% ), 4 were Isolated AS lesions( 8% ), 8 were Isolated AR lesions    (32% ),  2 were sclerosed lesions ( 4% ) (radiologically significant  cardiomegaly i.e CTI ≥ 0.5).

ECG evidence of LVH was seen in 54.5% of Pure AS and 47.1% of Mixed AS + AR, 7.7% of Pure AR and 22.2% of sclerosed aortic valve.
