Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A quadricuspid aortic valve is rare and often incidentally found by echocardiography, surgically, or on post mortem examination. Aortic regurgitation is common and if severe enough can lead to symptoms of dyspnea. We report a case of a quadricuspid aortic valve, which was found by cardiac multidetector computed tomography during a pre-operative assessment for severe aortic regurgitation.
