In brief: Generally yes
With aging, other factors become superimposed such as onset of coronary disease, hypertension, and senescent changes in diastolic function.
Moreover, the involved valve itself may gradually deteriorate. The net effect is often progressive worsening but this may not be noticed since people tend to slow down and do less activity as they age.
