Hi, My son was born with a bicuspid valve and aortic valve stenosis. We were told he would be monitored by a cardiologist yearly and would most likely need surgery at some point in his life, but probably not until he was in adulthood. The last visit we had was a couple of weeks ago. My son just turned 4 years old. The cardiologist informed us that my son appears to be falling in the minority and his aorta has already begun to dilate in one area. He is now preparing us that my son will most likely need heart surgery as a child. This has been very scary news. Does anyone have any experience with this condition? We are going for a second opinion in a couple of weeks to Miami Children's Hospital. Thanks in advance.
