Aims and Goals
The Bicuspid Aortic Valve Consortium (BAVCon) is dedicated to:
The discovery of the genetic and non-genetic causes of bicuspid aortic valve disease and its other associated diseases such as aortic disease and aortic coarctation, amongst others.
Identifying the cellular mechanisms of these diseases and non-genetic modifiers of the incidence and severity of these diseases.
To develop genetic tests or biomarkers that can provide prognostic information of complications of BAV.
To identify clinical and anatomic features that may contribute to the design of surgical interventions.
Designing and conducting appropriate surgical, epidemiologic and clinical trials that benefit the whole population of individuals with bicuspid aortic valve disease.
Our Mission is driven by our respect for people with bicuspid aortic valve disease and our drive to help them manage their disease.
