bicuspid aortic valve and valve replacement

  Are there some people who have had bicuspid aortic valve who will never have to have a valve replacement or will everyone with this problem eventually have to get their valve replaced? Thanks.

Dear Nathalie,
Q: Are there some people who have had bicuspid aortic valve who will never have to have a valve replacement or will everyone with this problem eventually have to get their valve replaced?
