Never heard of: This restriction unless your BP is low due to resultant aortic valve stenosis.

Can you tell me why I am restricted from donating plasma because of a bicuspid aortic valve?

No: I do not think that is a reason to restrict you unless you are on medications or have an infection of the bicuspid valve.
