Fig. 1

Cardiac magnetic resonance imaging of bicuspid aortic valve at end-systole in two patients treated with subcommissural annuloplasty (a) and external annuloplasty (b). After external annuloplasty (b) larger aortic valve area (AVA) was associated with lower transvalvular gradients as compared with subcommissural annuloplasty (a). AVA, aortic valve area; LA, left atrium; LCC, left coronary cusp; LV, left ventricle; NCC, noncoronary cusp; RA, right atrium; RCC, right coronary cusp; RV, right ventricle
