STOP-AS : Search Treatment and improve Outcome for Patient with Aortic Stenosis
The STOP-AS project is a research project which has been laureate of the second University Hospital Research (RHU) call for project.
Supported by the University Hospital Federation (FHU) REMOD-VHF (Early Markers of Cardiovascular Remodeling in Valvulopathy and Heart Failure) and coordinated by Professor Hélène Ektchaninoff, head of the Cardiology Department of the University Hospital of Rouen, this project aims to improve knowledge of aortic stenosis (AS) and develop new therapies.Aortic stenosis (AS) affects more than 2% of the elderly population in western countries, that is much as Alzheimer disease. Due to the aging of the population, this percentage wil double or even triple in the next 50 years. Symptomatic aortic stenosis is a fatal disease: without intervention, 1 in 5 people will die within 2 years. Currently, the treatment consists of surgical (SVR) or percutaneous valve replacement (TAVR).
