Abstract

© 2016Calcified bicuspid aortic valves are a commonly encountered clinical problem. Less common and possibly underreported, however, are embolic events secondary to a calcified valve. Events, including stroke and myocardial infarction, have been documented in the literature. We report the case of a myocardial infarction caused by transient occlusion of the right coronary artery, secondary to a mobile calcified lesion attached to a bicuspid aortic valve.
