Scatterplots of ascending aortic area (BSA-normalised) and distensibility (incremented and ln-transformed) in young (a) and old (b) Controls and in young (c) and old (d) Turner patients, illustrating an inverse relation in the older half of both populations, irrespective of aortic valve morphology (triangle = tricuspid valve; square = bicuspid valve). The reference line at a normalised ascending aortic area of 491 mm2/m2 corresponds to the cut-off aortic diameter of 2.5 cm/m2
