Answer

Overall, the 5-year survival rate in all adults after aortic valve replacement is 80-94%, and the 10-year survival rate is 68-89%. Risk factors for late death include the following:

  • High preoperative NYHA class

  • LV systolic dysfunction

  • Preoperative ventricular arrhythmias

  • Concomitant aortic regurgitation

  • Atrial fibrillation

  • Coronary artery disease, particularly a history of myocardial infarction
