A White Board Session

You can go years, or a lifetime, with a bicuspid aortic valve problem and not need an operation. But once that valve disease advances to a severe state, surgery is necessary. With leaky (insufficient) aortic valves, sometimes the valve can be repaired. When a bicuspid valve becomes narrowed (stenotic), those valves usually need to be replaced.
