Patients with Bicuspid Aortic Valve (BAV) are at increased risk of developing aortopathy compared to Tricuspid Aortic Valve (TAV) patients. However, there is imited data presenting the development of pathophysiologic changes taking place over multi year time period. Our study attempts to quantify the changes that take place from baseline and follow-up scans to help us better understand this process.
