The analysis of aortic valve kinetics during systole could provide incremental prognostic information beyond what is obtained for the standard valve effective orifice area. The aims of this study were to measure aortic valve opening and closing kinetic by cardiovascular magnetic resonance and to examine their association with markers of poor prognosis in patients with aortic stenosis.
