Hi, Thanks for using the HCM.
you have mentioned as bicuspid valve, weather its a aortic valve or other valve,
am assuming it as aortic valve, most of the cases are sporadic, few could be familial also..
possible complications are:
valve insufficiency,
valve stenosis,
progressive aortic root dilation
aortic anerusym
infective endocarditis
he needs regular follow up with cardiologist for early detection of complications and treatment.
need to undergo annual CT/ MRI to detect aortic dilatation, lipid profile test..
better to screen in other family members as this can be a familial also..
Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks get well soon
