Sinuses of Valsalva height is an important parameter in planning cardiac surgery, percutaneous coronary intervention and transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI). The aim of the study is to analyze the height of the sinuses of Valsalva depending on height, weight, body mass index, body surface area, and sex using computed tomography angiography images in Ukrainian population. 59 chest computed tomography angiography examination for non-cardiac reasons were retrospectively evaluated. Data were collected from Ukrainian citizen. The height of the Sinuses of Valsalva was measured as the distance between aortic annulus and sinotubular junction.
All three sinuses of Valsalva height were higher in men than in women (p<0.001). In men, three Sinuses of Valsalva had a correlation with height and body surface area (BSA) (р<0.05). In women, a correlation has been confirmed only between anthropometric measurements and the height of left and right coronary sinuses (р<0,05). The left coronary sinus height had a correlation with height, weight, body mass index (BMI) and BSA (р<0,05). The right coronary sinus height had a correlation with weight, BMI, and BSA (р<0.05). The parameters of the non-coronary sinus in women do not have confirmed direct correlations with any anthropometric measurements observed. The sinuses of Valsalva height is higher in males. The most significant confirmed correlations were between height and left and right coronary sinuses in men and women. Increased size of sinuses in men correlated with an increase of height, weight and decrease of BMI and BSA values.
