Warren et al., Heart 2006
Calculate BSA-adjusted z-scores of the ascending aorta and aortic root using data published in 2006 from Halifax, Nova Scotia. Per the authors:
Measurements were made in systole... in the parasternal long axis... from inner edge to inner edge. The ascending aorta was measured at the level of the right pulmonary artery.
Note: the study population had the following characteristics:
- age range: (0 - 18)
- bsa range: (0.25 - 2.3)
Data entered for patients outside of these limits should be used with caution.
