Table 1 Baseline characteristics of BAV patients and control subjects.

From: Hemodynamic predictors of aortic dilatation in bicuspid aortic valve by velocity-encoded cardiovascular magnetic resonance

Characteristic BAV patients Controls p-value
N 18 10  
Age 15.7 +/- 1.9 14.2 +/- 2.6 0.10
BSA 1.7 +/- 0.30 1.7 +/- 0.31 0.87
male 72.2 % (n = 13) 70 % (n = 7) 0.87
female 27.8 % (n = 5) 30 % (n = 3)  
Characteristic BAV Patients   
Aortic dilatation 14   
Aortic aneurysm 0   
Left/right cor. cusp fusion: 15   
Right/non-cor. cusp fusion 3   
Left/non-cor. cusp fusion 0   
  1. Standard deviations in the observed values are listed with subject age and BSA. P-values show no significant differences in estimated mean values between patients and controls.
