Moderate stenosis and mild insufficiency increasing slowly since birth due to fused leaflet bicuspid aortic valve. After checking out a possible Hollenhosrt Plaque in my eye, and then looking for signs of stroke (of which there was none) imaging found a 5.3cm aneurysm in my aorta. And so, here I am.
