Abstract


Congenital bicuspid aortic valve stenosis is estimated to occur in 1 to 2% of general population, making it the single most common congenital cardiac anomaly, but in association with fibro muscular sub aortic ridge (fibro muscular collar) is a rare combination of congenital cardiac anomalies. We present here a rare case of sub aortic fibro muscular ridge that is associated with congenital bicuspid aortic valve.
