The book〝Aortic Valve〞is comprised of 18 chapters and is further organized into seven sections. Section I (Basic Science) includes two chapters. In Chapter 1 titled〝Rapid quantitation of aortic valve flow using spiral Fourier velocity encoded MRI〞by Joao LA Carvalho and Krishna S Nayak, the authors introduced spiral Fourier velocity encoding, a new method for rapid and non-invasive measurement of cardiovascular blood flow using magnetic resonance imaging ( MRI ), which is capable of accurately capturing peak velocities in flow jets due to stenosis or regurgitation. In Chapter 2, titled〝State-of-the-art methods for the numerical simulation of aortic BMHVs〞by Annerel Sebastiaan et al., the authors say that modern bileaflet mechanical heart valves (BMHVs) are still far from perfect and still face major design challenges. Authors introduce that numerical simulation techniques can provide valuable information and are considered as crucial in order to gain insights into the blood flow, and assess the performance of future valve prototypes. Section Ⅱ (General Consideration of Aortic Valve Disease) includes chapter 3 with the title 〝Aortic valve disease from etiology to bedside〞by Shahab Shahrzad and Samira
Taban. The authors provide basic information that is essential to understanding aortic root anatomy and the general knowledge of aortic valve diseases, including management. Section Ⅲ (Infective Endocarditis) includes two chapters covering infective endocarditis. Chapter 4, 〝Aortic valve endocarditis〞by Lazar Velicki and Chapter titled〝Native and prosthetic aortic valve endocarditis〞by Ioan Tilea et al. These chapters describe various aspects of native and prosthetic aortic valve endocarditis, including epidemiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, microbiology, diagnosis, complications and updated medical and surgical treatments, and it will be informative to readers. Section Ⅳ (Aortic Sclerosis / Aortic Stenosis) includes two chapters. In Chapter 6, 〝The progression of aortic sclerosis to aortic stenosis〞by Uzma Jalal et al., the authors propose some thoughts that early, aggressive medical intervention be undertaken before the irrevocable process of calcification occurs. Chapter 7, titled〝Calcific aortic valve disease〞by Jesper Hjortnaes and Elena Aikawa, attempts to characterize the studies that have identified the molecular biology of calcific aortic valve disease, to understand the cellular mechanisms of the disease, and potentially preventing this disease procession. Section V (Bioprosthetic Valve) includes two chapters on cardiac valvular prosthesis. Chapter 8 which is titled 〝Clinical and hemodynamic performance of the Sorin Mitroflow pericardial bioprothesis〞by Jamieson et al., and Chapter 9,〝Influence of prosthesis patient mismatch on survival with aortic valve replacement〞 by Jamieson et al. These chapters describe the various issues of cardiac prostheses including the newly developed bioprosthesis with excellent hemodynamic performance and a comprehensive review of prosthesis-patient mismatch after aortic valve replacement.....
