What is a Bicuspid Aortic Valve?

The aortic valve usually has three leaflets that control blood flow to the aorta, the largest artery in the body. A bicuspid aortic valve has two leaflets, which increases the risk of developing serious conditions like aortic stenosis, aortic regurgitation, or aortic aneurysms.
