Leaflet fusion length is associated with aortic dilation and flow alterations in non-dysfunctional bicuspid aortic valve.

Eur Radiol 2021 May 12. Epub 2021 May 12.

Vall d'Hebron Institut de Recerca (VHIR), Barcelona, Spain.

Objective: Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV), the most common congenital valve defect, is associated with increased risk of aortic dilation and related complications; however, current risk assessment is not effective. Most of BAV have three leaflets with a fusion between two of them of variable length. This study aimed to ascertain whether the extent of leaflet fusion (often called raphe) is related to aortic dilation and flow abnormalities in BAV with no significant valvular dysfunction.

Surgical management for unruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysms: a narrative review of the literature.

J Thorac Dis 2021 Mar;13(3):1833-1850

Division of Cardiovascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC, Canada.

Unruptured sinus of Valsalva aneurysms (SVAs) are rare cardiac lesions that arise due to congenital or acquired etiologies. They could be asymptomatic or cause various clinical manifestations as a consequence of their mass effect on the coronary arteries, heart valves, and other adjacent structures. While the factors predicting SVA rupture are not fully understood, ruptured SVAs carry a high complication and mortality rate, highlighting the need for early recognition and management of unruptured SVAs.

Sinus of Valsalva Aneurysms: A Review with Perioperative Considerations.

J Cardiothorac Vasc Anesth 2020 Dec 14. Epub 2020 Dec 14.

Department of Anesthesiology, Washington University in St. Louis, St. Louis, MO. Electronic address:

The sinuses of Valsalva are outpouchings in the aortic root just distal to the aortic valve that serve several physiologic functions. Aneurysm of this segment of the aorta is quite rare and infrequently encountered in clinical practice. Due to the rarity of sinus of Valsalva aneurysms, there is a lack of controlled trials and most of the literature consists of case reports and series. Read More

ECG-gated MR angiography provides better reproducibility for standard aortic measurements.

Eur Radiol 2021 Jan 6. Epub 2021 Jan 6.

Duke Cardiovascular Magnetic Resonance Center, Duke University Medical Center, DUMC-3934, Durham, NC, 27710, USA.

Objective: Cardiac motion and aortic pulsatility can affect the image quality of 3D contrast-enhanced MR angiography (CE-MRA). The addition of ECG gating improves image quality; however, no studies have directly linked image quality improvements to clinically used measures. In this study, we directly compared diameter measurements in the same patient from ECG-gated to non-gated CE-MRA to evaluate the impact of ECG gating upon measurement reproducibility. Read More
