Creating a Climate of Hope, an Atmosphere of Caring, and Information for All

Ken Simon - Bicuspid Aortic Valve and Aortic Dissection After hours in the ER, where the reason for Ken’s pain and disorientation was not found, they were preparing to send him home when he suddenly died. Following Ken's death, it was determined that he died from thoracic aortic dissection. Later, after obtaining his medical records, the family learned that Ken had a "probable" bicuspid aortic valve and an aneurysm - information they did not have in the ER that day. Getting your medical records, reading them, and asking about anything written there that you don’t understand is so important.
