Aortic sclerosis with grade 2 AR should not cause any problem at this time but I wonder about your tachycardia. Unfortunately, we do not have enough data from echocardiographic and hemodynamic findings to give you a correct assessment. Whatever, this valvular problem can be managed either medically or surgically in severe, symptomatic cases.
