What do you think about the following cine-sequences?
A – aortic regurgitation (probably tricuspid valve)
B – aortic stenosis (probably bicuspid valve)
C – aortic stenosis (probably tricuspid valve)
D – aortic regurgitation (probably bicuspid valve)
Right answer is D: aortic regurgitation (probably bicuspid valve)
The eccentricity of the regurgitation jet and the asymmetry of the valve opening already suggest a bicuspid valve. In these cases, it is always useful to implement the study with dedicated cine sequences for the study of valve anatomy.
