Is Bicuspid aortic valve disease dangerous
In most patients a BAV will function normally as in your case. If BAV becomes a problem it is usually because of worsening leakage causing the heart function to deteriorate (unlike yours). The only thing I would advice you is to ask your cardiologist whether you need antibiotic prophylaxis for common procedures such as dental surgery, since there may be abnormal flow pattern across your valve. The ECHO is conclusive for a diagnosis if BAV.
