Mentions: The mainstay of diagnosis is echocardiography (transthoracic or transoesophageal) which can provide a definitive diagnosis in the majority of patients (Figure 3). Figures of 92% sensitivity and 96% specificity have been reported when images are adequate [25, 26]. Due to the natural history of BAV to lead to heavily calcified stenotic valves, the utility of echocardiography can be limited [27].
