BACKGROUND Bicuspid aortic valves are associated with valve dysfunction, ascending aortic aneurysm and dissection. Management of the ascending aorta at the time of aortic valve replacement (AVR) in these patients is controversial and has been extrapolated from experience with Marfan syndrome, despite the absence of comparative long-term outcome data. OBJECTIVES This study sought to assess whether the natural history of thoracic aortopathy after AVR in patients with bicuspid aortic valve… CONTINUE READING
