Table 1 Peak TKE

From: Turbulent kinetic energy in the ascending aorta is greater in bicuspid than tricuspid aortic valve stenosis

  Bicuspid AS Tricuspid AS p-value (unpaired t-test)
Peak TKE- valve and ascending aorta 28.5mJ (±12.6) 19.6mJ (±8.0) 0.03
Peak TKE- Ascending aorta alone (sinuses of Valsalva to the arch) 18.9mJ (±8.4) 11.0mJ (±4.1) 0.006
  1. Values are mean peak TKE in mJ (±standard deviation)
