Older brother died in 1981 of dissecting aneurysm of ascending aorta. My pathology report points to a bicuspid valve at 5.8 cm and Marfan syndrome as being part of the picture.

Have a lovely wife, have a large kitchen garden, cooking, remodeling the house, boating, having a dog. My avatar is a drawing I did in anticipation of AVR. A dog with new valve clamped in mouth and the body in the shape of the aortic arch.
