Aortic Valve Disease & Aortic Aneurysms: Surgeon Q&A with Dr. Joseph Bavaria

Patients diagnosed with aortic valve disorders are commonly diagnosed with aortic aneurysms, a swelling or bulging of the aorta that can lead to a life-threatening situation. This unique relationship among aortic valve disease, bicuspid aortic valves, and aneurysm is important for patients to learn about for the proper management and treatment of these cardiac conditions. In this video, Dr. Joseph Bavaria, Vice Chief of Cardiovascular Surgery and Past-President of the Society of Thoracic Surgeons, answers several, important patient questions specific to the prevalence, cause, management and treatment of aortic valve disease and aortic aneurysms including valve repair, valve replacement, aortic root reconstruction and valve-sparing procedures.
