Fig. 3. Participants with aortic valve sclerosis (AVS) had a higher chance of having larger clonal hematopoiesis indeterminate potential (CHIP) clones than participants in the age- and sex-matched control group. Two representative cases are shown. (Left panel) A 76-yr-old man with a normal aortic valve is shown in parasternal view upon transthoracic echocardiography. He had a history of dyslipidemia and percutaneous coronary revascularization (in the left anterior descending artery) but no evidence of a CHIP variant (variant allele frequency [VAF]: 0%). (Right panel) A 72-yr-old man with AVS (red arrows) and a CHIP variant in TET2 (VAF: 3.4%). The patient had a history of hypertension and diabetes mellitus.
