The bicuspid aortic valve is associated with disorders of the aortic wall, including coarctation of the aorta and aortic dissection. The histologic abnormality underlying aortic complications in bicuspid aortic valve is cystic medial necrosis. The elastic properties of the aorta are abnormal in bicuspid aortic valve. Here, we present a case of aortic thrombotic occlusion in a patient with a bicuspid aortic valve.
