Mutations in NOTCH1 can cause aortic valve disease 1 (AOVD1; MIM 109730), which is an autosomal dominant disorder. AOVD1 is characterized by bicuspid aortic valve. Bicuspid aortic valve frequently leads to aortic valve stenosis or insufficiency. Other associated findings can include hypoplastic left heart syndrome, coarctation of the aorta or aortic dilation / more
