ABSTRACT

Diagnosis: Bicuspid Aortic Valve with Aortic Dilatation

History: 47 year old male presenting with left arm numbness and visual changes.

Findings: Chest radiography reveals mild prominence of the ascending aorta in the posteroanterior projection along the superior right heart border. Left ventricular enlargement implies progressive aortic valve insufficiency. CT with contrast confirms dilation of the ascending aorta with mild left ventricular hypertrophy.

Ddx: -Atheroscloerosis -Aortic valvular disease (stenosis and/or insufficiency) -Collagen vascular disease (e.g. Marfan syndrome) -Mycotic aneurysm -Aortic dissection

Dxhow: Echocardiography.

Exam: CV: systolic ejection click

No MeSH data available.


Dilated aortic root (A).  Notice the diameter is almost four times larger than the proximal pulmonary artery (PA).  SVC - superior vena cava.  Right mainstem bronchus (RB) and Left mainstem bronchus (LB).
