Infundibular ventricular septal defect, aneurysm of the sinus of Valsalva, and bicuspid
aortic valve in a caucasian male.
We describe a 14-year-old girl having a combination of a bicuspid
aortic valve and an aneurysm of the left sinus of Valsalva with severe aortic stenosis, moderate regurgitation, and an aneurysm of the ascending aorta.
As far as configuration of occlusal groove pattern is concerned, more frequency of U/crescent shaped pattern (54%) has been observed associated with bicuspid
variety in the present study.
His CT scan findings suggested bicuspid
aortic valve, dilated aortic root and mild dilated ascending aorta, severe juxtaductal aortic coarctation, multiple mediastinal and posterior chest walls, and paravertebral and intercostal collaterals on either side bypassing coarctation with collaterals channels [Figure 2A].
Ichthyomyzon unicuspis: A few parasiticphase Ichthyomyzon were provisionally identified as silver lampreys rather than chestnut lampreys because they lacked bicuspid
Clinical and special investigation features of aortic stenosis Aortic stenosis History Exertional dyspnoea Angina Syncope Physical findings Small-volume, slow-rising pulses Narrow pulse pressure JVP normal, unless heart failure or MV disease Pressure-loaded undisplaced apex beat Soft or single second heart sound Crescendo-decrescendo ejection systolic murmur at base of the heart Radiated to carotids Longer murmur = more severe High-pitched widely radiating murmur: Gallavardin effect--can be mistaken for MR Systolic click in bicuspid
valve may be heard Special investigations ECG Left ventricular hypertrophy CXR Normal-sized heart (ventricle) Aortic calcification Post-stenotic dilatation: especially in bicuspid
valves Table 4.

Because patients are not exposed to ionizing radiation and nephrotoxic contrast media with this technique, MRI is an attractive option in this clinical setting (8,9) particularly for younger patients with conditions placing them at higher risk for TAAs such as bicuspid
aortic valve and Marfan, Ehlers-Danlos, and Loeys-Dietz syndromes.
Hollie, who has been a patient of the cardiology department at Birmingham Children's Hospital since she was nine months old, has a condition called Bicuspid
Aortic Valve which means the valve in Hollie's heart has only two parts when most people have three.
In addition, male patients had more transposition of great arteries, Ebstein's anomaly, coarctation of aorta, and bicuspid
aortic valve, and slightly more ventricular septal defects than females.

Transesophageal echocardiography showed a bicuspid
aortic valve with significant regurgitation and a vegetation of 4mm.
