Isolated bicuspid pulmonary valve: an unusual finding.

J. Heart Valve Dis.. 2004 May;13(3):521-2, PMID: 15222301

Whilst the pulmonary valve is a tricuspid valve, very few reports exist of bicuspid pulmonary valves, the majority of which are associated with congenital heart disease. Isolated bicuspid valves not associated with congenital abnormalities are even more rare. Herein, the case is described of a 65-year-old man who died from a stroke, and in whom a bicuspid pulmonary valve was found during post-mortem dissection for tissue donation.
