Aortic stenosis is life-threatening

“Unless investigation and surgery can be performed very quickly, death, whether sudden or not, is still unacceptably common in severe aortic stenosis.”
–J. B. Chambers & P. Das, Guy’s and St. Thomas’ Hospitals, London1

Progression of aortic stenosis2

Aortic Stenosis progression

Valvular aortic stenosis is progressive and life-threatening. Once symptoms appear, untreated patients have a poor prognosis; they will experience worsening symptoms, eventually leading to death. After the onset of symptoms, average survival is 50% at two years and 20% at five years.2
