Difference in rest and peak exercise of AV velocity, CT-ADP and loss of vWF HMWMs

At rest (n=10)At peak exercise (n=10)P value
Maximal AV velocity (cm/s)359±56411±56 (n=6)0.046*
CT-ADP (sec)138±31138±650.45*
HMWM ratio0.59±0.220.61±0.170.65*
  • *Wilcoxon Signed Rank test used; p<0.05 was considered significant. Summary values represent number (%) or mean±SD.

  • AV, aortic valve; CT-ADP, closure time with adenosine diphosphate; HMWMs, high-molecular-weight multimers; vWF, von Willebrand factor.
