Rarely does a congenitally bicuspid valve function normally or near normally during an entire lifetime.
The congenitally bicuspid valve (Figures 3 and 4) of course has two cusps, and they are usually of slightly unequal size in both cuspal surface area and weight.
TAVR has also been tried successfully in several 'off label' indica- tions such as in patients with bicuspid valves, severe MR, reduced left ventricular ejection fraction, and low gradient, low output AS (59).

Presumably the inherently abnormal flow pattern across bicuspid valves (13) and defective microfibrils within the valvular leaflets (14) lead to earlier degeneration and dystrophic calcification than in tricuspid valves.
