“Equally Bicuspid” aortic valve

By far BAV is the most common congenital heart disease

Angiographically two types of BAV can be identified-Equally bicuspid and unequal

Interestingly Coarctation is associated with an “equally bicuspid ” aortic valve

It may be denoting a different pathogenetic process altogether
