Abstract
Objective/BackgroundThe development of ascending aortic dilatation in patients with bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is highly variable, and this makes surgical decision strategies particularly challenging. The purpose of this study was to identify new predictors, other than the well established aortic size, that may help to stratify the risk of aortic dilatation in BAV patients.MethodsUsing fluid–structure interaction analysis, both haemodynamic and...
