Physical determinants of systolic murmur intensity in aortic stenosis

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We investigated which physical parameter has the greatest impact on the perceived loudness of a systolic murmur in aortic stenosis. Loudness of murmur in aortic stenosis correlated best with peak momentum transfer - and thus with body size - so that loud murmurs predict severe disease less reliably in larger patients.
