Purpose:Aortic sinus diameter dilatation expressed as a Z-score >2.0 is diagnostic in Marfan syndrome. In addition to the classic equation (Z1) for calculating Z-scores, two new equations were recently introduced (Z2 and Z3).Methods:We studied the effects of obesity, age, and the absolute cut point of 40 mm on these three equations in 2,674 echocardiographic measurements of 260 patients with Marfan syndrome.Results:Diameters ≥40 mm were associated with Z1 scores <2.0 in 109 ...
