The article focuses on new surgical approaches to aortic valve repair in patients with aortic insufficiency. Particular focus is given to transesophageal echocardiography as a diagnostic tool. Topics discussed include procedures for repairing aortic cusps, reoperation rate associated with bicuspid aortic valve repair with prolapse of the conjoint cusp, and types of aortic-valve sparing operations.

    Quadricuspid aortic valve is a rare congenital malformation of the aortic valve. Even in the era of a transthoracic and transesophageal ultrasound the occurrence is sometimes missed. Aortic incompetence occurs usually in 5th or 6th decade of life requiring surgical intervention. We report on a...
