Patient :Hi. I am 16 years old and I was born with bicuspid aortic valve disease(BAVD). First of all is this the same as aortic stenosis? If not I also have that as well. My second question is that I'm having a party and am planning to try alcohol. I am worried that alcohol is bad for me as I heard it can cause atherosclerosis, which will be bad. I am mature and will probably only have 2 - 3 cans of beer. Am I able to?
