Turk Kardiyol Dern Ars. 2023 Jan;51(1):69-71. doi: 10.5543/tkda.2022.83445.


A bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is one of the most congenital anomalies of the heart in adults. It is also associated with a higher-than-expected incidence of coronary artery anomalies. We present a rare case of congenital BAV associated with anomalous origin of the left main coronary artery (LMCA) from the posterior left coronary sinus of Valsalva in young symptomatic athlete.
