About this study

The purpose of this registry is to collect data and imagery, to study children and adults under the age of 21 who were born with bicuspid aortic valve disease. Some types of bicuspid aortic valves might be more likely associated with greater disease severity such as the degree of stenosis or valve leakage and possible enlargement of the aorta.

Participation eligibility

Participant eligibility includes age, gender, type and stage of disease, and previous treatments or health concerns. Guidelines differ from study to study, and identify who can or cannot participate. If you need assistance understanding the eligibility criteria, please contact the study team.
