AIM Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is a very heterogeneous disorder and risk of aortic events in BAV may be influenced by phenotype of the disease. Correlation has been proposed between aortic dilatation patterns and functional status of the BAV (i.e., stenosis versus insufficiency). The aim of our study was to evaluate the risk of late aortic events after isolated aortic valve replacement (AVR) in patients with BAV stenosis versus insufficiency. METHODS Review of our institutional BAV database… CONTINUE READING
