Bicuspid Aortic Valve Anatomy:
Intraoperative Surgical and Echocardiographic Analysis

In this video,  John G. Augoustides MD, and Prashanth Vallabhajosyula, MD, stress the importance of an in-depth understanding of the “normal” and pathologic dynamic anatomy of the bicuspid aortic valve and BAV leaflet configuration in relationship to the aortic annulus as the precedent to BAV repair and root reconstruction. Topics include Sievers classification, geometry of the BAV in each of its variants, the relationship between BAV phenotype and valve hemodynamics, and why BAV leaflet anatomy matters.'
