Abstract

A 47-year-old male underwent surgery for functional bicuspid aortic valve severe regurgitation with a fused right and left coronary cusp. The patient presents nine years after surgical bicuspid aortic valve repair with symptomatic severe aortic regurgitation, diagnosed by TEE and MRI, caused primarily from a perforation located at the base of the surgically fused coronary cusps. The patient had a minimally dilated aortic root that did not yet necessitate surgical intervention. We present a novel percutaneous bicuspid aortic valve perforation repair that potentially decreases the number of surgical operations the patient must undergo during his lifetime.
