It Could Have Been Much Worse

According to my cardiologist:

The good news is that unlike other aortic aneurysmal pathologies (Marfan Syndrome, Ehlers-Dahnlos Syndrome, etc), where aneurysm formation THROUGHOUT the aorta is a risk at all times… the bicuspid aortopathy is limited to the root and proximal 1/3rd of the ascending aorta only. The rest of your aorta is normal, and is not at any increased risk of aneurysm formation beyond that of the general population.
