Bicuspid Aortic Valve Surgery

Bicuspid aortic valve has 2 leaves instead of 3 leaves. The first effect of bicuspid aortic valve disease is calcification. Arthritis can develop rapidly between the ages of 30 and 50. As a result of calcification, the valves may soften and become deformed, leaking backwards and causing heart enlargement. Therefore, intervention must be made without wasting time.

Bicuspid Aortic Valve Repair

If the person does not have other illnesses such as endocarditis, it is most appropriate to replace the aortic valve. However, if there is a previous disease, it is possible to treat it with valve repair.

A bicuspid aortic valve can be repaired by reshaping the aortic valves, which allows the valve to open and close more completely.

Bicuspid aortic valve repair may be an option to treat leaky valves, but cannot be used to treat a stenotic or narrowed bicuspid aortic valve.

Bicuspid aortic valve repair can be performed using a minimally invasive “J” incision surgical technique. Aortic valve surgery is technically difficult and should be performed by a surgeon experienced in aortic valve repair.
