Answer
Hi Rajratan,
Trivial AR/Aortic Sclerosis doesn't require any treatment, which is reserved for valves that leak or become blocked. At that time treatment is focused on surgery, either repair or replacement:

The oldest patient I performed a valve replacement on was 98 years old!

Hope this helps,
