Jay Mohan, D.O., RPVI, interventional cardiology fellow at William Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, Michigan, created this video to briefly explain what is a bicuspid aortic valve.
A bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) has two instead of the usual three leaflets of a normal tricuspid aortic valve. Usually two of the leaflets are fused together during fetal development. About one-third of patients with BAV develop valve complications during their lifetime.
Mohan is board certified in cardiology, internal medicine, echocardiography and nuclear cardiology. He also serves as vice president of the Dr. Ramesh Kumar Foundation.
Mohan shares regular updates on Twitter about recent cardiology technology devices, takeaway points from conferences and short educational videos he produces. Follow or contact him via Twitter or Instagram at @cardiologyoncall.
