Table 4 TS with dilatation or aneurysm at the measuring positions.

From: Thoracic aortopathy in Turner syndrome and the influence of bicuspid aortic valves and blood pressure: a CMR study

  Dilatation Aneurysm χ2-test dilatation (BAV vs TAV)
ECHOCARDIOGRAPHY (n = 97)    
Aortic valve sinus 8 (6) 0 0.001
CMR (n = 94)    
Aortic valve sinus 11 (7) 2 (2) 0.003
Ascending aorta 12 (10) 0 < 0.001
Aorta proximal to innominate artery 11 (8) 0 < 0.002
Proximal transverse aortic arch 6 (5) 0 0.002
Distal transverse aortic arch 1 (1) 0 0.1
Aortic isthmus 1 (1) 0 0.1
Descending aorta 4 (0) 1 (1) 0.001
Descending aorta (diaphragm level) 3 (3) 0 0.004
  1. Not all participants have obtained measurements at all positions. The first number depicts the total number with dilatation/aneurysm, while bracketed number represents those with dilatation or aneurysm and bicuspid aortic valve. The number of individuals with dilatation at only one position was 22 (23%) and at 2 positions or more was 13 (14%).
