Life After Aortic Valve Replacement Surgery. Surgery should not be withheld from the elderly on the basis of age alone. I had aorta graft replacement and also aorta valve replacement with titanium st.jude’s valve.
It will be exactly 3 months old on 20th june 2019 after my surgery. Surgical risk, age, perceived life expectancy, and valve durability influence the choice between surgical aortic valve replacement (savr) and transcatheter aortic valve implantation. Conclusions —functional outcome after aortic valve replacement in patients >80 years old is excellent, the operative risk is acceptable, and the late survival rate is good.
