Abstract

CW Doppler echocardiography has proved to be valuable in the assessment of severity of aortic stenosis. Because both aortic stenosis and mitral regurgitation produce similar systolic Doppler flow signals with high velocity, they must be differentiated on the basis of ejection/regurgitation period, Doppler flow relationship to cardiac cycle, valve opening and closure, transducer positions, and accompanying diastolic Doppler signal. In so doing, one can avoid the pitfall of misinterpreting systolic aortic flow for systolic mitral regurgitation.
