What are the implications of a third heart sound in patients with valvular heart disease ?

• in patients with mitral regurgitation, they are common but do not necessarily reflect ventricular systolic dysfunction or increased filling pressure (N Engl J Med 1992: 327: 458-62).

• In patients with aortic stenosis, third heart sounds are uncommon but usually indicate the presence
