Aspirin is recommended when there is a risk for blood clots. You have listed mild valve leakage, and that would not be a risk for blood clots. There is a risk for clots when there are heart rhythm disorders, for instance, very fast contractions of heart wallsthat don't progress the blood flow normally and the blood could pool and clot. Also, aspirin is an antiplatelet agent that helps prevent clots within the vessels and coronary arteries that could occludes the vessel and prevent good blood flow and/or clot that breaks away from a heart wall causing a heart attack or stroke.
