bicuspid aorta & adhd
My son has a bicuspid aorta and was recently diagnoised with ADHD. Are there any complications associated with taking ADHA medication and his valve issue? What tests should be performed and how often?

I do not know of any contraindications to the medications for ADHD and a bicuspid aortic valve.  One in 500 people are born with a bicuspid aortic valve and in general periodic echocardiograms are used to follow this and they should be done every few years--the frequency is based on the valve function at baseline and if normal a follow up echo in about 5 years.
