THORACIC AORTIC DILATIONS IN PATIENTS WITH BICUSPID AORTIC VALVE DISEASE IS MARKED BY ACCELERATED SMOOTH MUSCLE CELL AGING
Abstract 249: Thoracic Aortic Dilation in Patients with Bicuspid Aortic Valves is Marked by Accelerated Vascular Smooth Muscle Cell Aging
Individuals with a bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) are at increased risk for ascending aortic dilation and dissection. Loss of aortic medial smooth muscle cells (SMCs) and disruption of the extracellular… Expand
