OBJECTIVES This study sought to identify risk factors for rapid growth of the ascending aorta in patients with bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) disease, taking into account its phenotypic variability. BACKGROUND Phenotypic heterogeneity of BAV-related aortopathy has recently been widely recognized. However, few studies have addressed the determinants of aortic growth so far, not distinguishing among morphological phenotypes. METHODS Serial retrospective data on 133 adult outpatients with BAV… CONTINUE READING
