2 Bicuspid Aortic Valve Occurs in 1-2% of population Associated with : aortic coarctationpatent ductus arteriosisabnormal proximal coronary vasculature
3 Bicuspid Aortic ValveAssociated with connective tissue problems of aortic root and aortaAssociated with aortic dilation, aneurysm, and dissectionAssociated with aortic root dilation
4 Bicuspid Aortic Valve Prone to developing aortic stenosis Aortic root dilation can cause aortic insufficiency
5 Bicuspid Aortic ValveSchematic presentation (as viewed from the surgeon’s position with the left coronary sinus on the left side) of the classification system of BAVs with one main and two subcategories, including the number of specimens (percent in parenthesis)Hans-H. Sievers, MD, and Claudia Schmidtke, MD, MBA. A classification system for the bicuspid aortic valve from 304 surgical specimens. J Thoracic Cardiovasc Surg :
11 Age distribution of bicuspid and tricuspid aortic valve stenosis.
12 Age (by decades) versus functional state of 535 congenitally bicuspid aortic valves (data for the 7 normally functioning valves are not shown.) Al=aortic insufficiency (regurgitation); AS=aortic stenosis. (Sabet et al)
13 Bicuspid Aortic Valve with Dilated Ascending Aorta Class I Recommendations Surgery to repair the aortic root or replace the ascending aorta is indicated in patients with bicuspid aortic valves if the diameter of the aortic root or ascending aorta is greater than 5.0 cm* or if the rate of increase in diameter is 0.5 cm per year or more. (Level of Evidence: C)In patients with bicuspid valves undergoing AVR because of severe AS or AR (see Sections and ), repair of the aortic root or replacement of the ascending aorta is indicated if the diameter of the aortic root or ascending aorta is greater than 4.5 cm.* (Level of Evidence: C)2006 Guidelines for the Management of Patients with Valvular Heart Disease
