Forecast | Aortic valve stenosis


Since the symptoms of aortic valve stenosis often appear very late, the prognosis of the disease is relatively poor without surgical replacement of the valve, since the disease is already well advanced at the time of diagnosis. The individual prognosis is significantly influenced by the severity of the stenosis, but also by the general condition and any accompanying diseases. The possibility of replacing the aortic valve has significantly improved the prognosis of the disease. It is assumed that older patients in particular reach about the same age after valve replacement as people in their age group without aortic valve stenosis.
