Abstract

Quadricuspid aortic valve (QAV) is a rare congenital heart defect. Most frequently it is isolated defect. There are 7 anatomical variants of QAV depending on cuspids size. QAV may lead to malfunction of the valve, most frequently to aortic valve insufficiency. Management of patients with QAV is determined mainly by the severity of dysfunction. This paper includes description of a female patient, diagnosed because of atypical chest pain, in whom quadricuspid aortic valve was revealed.
