Surgical management of symptomatic aortic valve disease has been successful in improving both survival and function. Data reported from the literature suggest an operative mortality of from 5% to 8%, with a lower risk for elective replacement, and a 65% to 75% five-year survival rate as opposed to 50% to 60% in non-surgical patients with symptomatic aortic valve disease.
