BACKGROUND Bicuspid aortic valves (BAVs) are associated with aortopathy. Recent studies suggest that aortic dilatation is more likely to be seen with left-right coronary cusp fusion (type I) compared with right-noncoronary cusp fusion (type II). The aim of this study was to investigate the association between BAV morphology and patterns of aortopathy. METHODS Aortic dimensions and BAV morphology were obtained retrospectively from archived cine loops of 581 consecutive patients with BAVs and… CONTINUE READING
