Abstract: Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is the most common congenital cardiac malformation, affecting 1-2% of the population, with strong male predominance. Individuals may have a normally functioning BAV, and may be unaware of its presence and the potential risk of complications. However, they may easily develop aortic valve disorders: either stenotic or regurgitant, or both. Today, BAV is recognized as a syndrome incorporating aortic valve disorders and aortic wall abnormalities, including aortic dilation, dissection or… Show more

“…Valvular aortic stenosis results in chronic left ventricular pressure overloading. [4] Compensatory concentric left ventricular hypertrophy allows the pressure-overloaded ventricle to maintain stroke volume with modest increases in diastolic pressure, and the patients remain asymptomatic for many years. [5] Careful hemodynamic monitoring is vital.…”

“…Correct diagnosis is very important because blood pressure tends to normalize after correction of the aortic defect 10 . In turn, bicuspid aortic valve is the most common cardiac malformation, which may be traditionally associated with coarctation of the aortic arch, but also several other malformations 11 . However, triad bicuspid aortic valve, coarctation of the aortic arch and sinus of Valsalva aneurysm, as presented by the patient in question is considered rare 12 .…”
