A prospective study to assess the frequency of familial clustering of congenital bicuspid aortic valve
Outcome of isolated bicuspid aortic valve in childhood.
Novaro GM, Tiong IY, Pearce GL, Grimm RA, Smedira N, Griffin BP Features and predictors of ascending aortic dilatation in association with a congenital bicuspid aortic valve.
Mitral valve prolapse associated with bicuspid aortic valve.
Mitral valve prolapse syndrome associated with congenital bicuspid aortic valve.
In the present study, we evaluated whether the stiffness and distensibility of the abdominal aorta was altered in children with bicuspid aortic valve by using transthoracic echocardiography.
The study was performed on 35 children with normally functioning or mildly regurgitant bicuspid aortic valve (22 males and 13 females) mean ages 10.
Other associations with LVNC have included Ebstein's anomaly, bicuspid aortic valve
, aorta-to-left-ventricular tunnel, and transposition of the great vessels (16, 17).
We described a case of NVM in a 19-year-old male with a moderate aortic regurgitation and bicuspid aortic valve.
A bicuspid aortic valve with a moderate aortic regurgitation was detected during TEE (Fig.
Why one congenitally bicuspid aortic valve
becomes stenotic (8, 26), another has pure regurgitation without superimposed infective endocarditis (27), another becomes severely dysfunctional only when infective endocarditis appears (28), and some function normally an entire lifetime is unclear (8).
At operation a heavily calcified congenitally bicuspid aortic valve
This type of aortic coarctation involves neonates and infants, and cardiac anomalies, such as a bicuspid aortic valve
, ventricular septal defect, and patent ductus arteriosus, commonly coexist (1).
5 m/sec), rheumatic valvular disease prosthetic valves, bicuspid aortic valves
, congenital heart disease, bacterial endocarditis, atrial fibrillation, or hypertrophic obstructive cardiomyopathy, as well as those who had suffered from symptomatic vascular disease such as stroke, transient ischemia, coronary heart disease, congestive heart failure, and intermittent claudication, were excluded from the study.
Patients with congenitally bicuspid aortic valves
also often have dilated ascending aortas due to medial deficiencies.
