BackgroundBicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is the most frequent congenital heart disease with frequent involvement in thoracic aortic dilatation, aneurysm and dissection. Although BAV and Marfan syndrome (MFS) share some clinical features, and some MFS patients with BAV display mutations in FBN1, the gene encoding fibrillin-1, the genetic background of isolated BAV is poorly defined.MethodsTen consecutive BAV patients [8 men, age range 24–42 years] without MFS were clinically characterized. BAV… CONTINUE READING
