Dr. put down as a DX bicuspid aortic valve. Is this abnormal? Should this be a tricuspid valve? What DX code would you use. I'm not familiar with Cardiology. Thanks!

Hi,
Bicuspid aortic valve (BAV) is a defect of the aortic valve that results in the formation of two leaflets or cusps instead of the normal three.
The ICD code is 746.4
