BICUSPID AORTIC VALVE: THE PECULIARITIES OF CALCINOSIS DEVELOPMENT AND PATHOMORPHOLOGICAL CHANGES
Summary. The problem of aortic valve calcinosis in patients with bicuspid aortic valve is discussed. The main pathogenic mechanisms of aortic valve calcinosis as well as its pathomorphological pattern are presented. Hyalinosis, mucoidal changes of basic substance of connective tissue are proved to be main pathohistological changes in bicuspid aortic valve. Calcinosis of aortic valve develops in some patients and therefore pathogenesis of its development require further research.
