Average Life Expectancy 1500
Variable: It is important to understand that the brain may dictate bodily function. If lisencephaly is part of miller-dieker syndrome death may occur before age 2, but sometimes infants may live longer. Remember if the patient cannot feed themselves and is bed-ridden-they are prone to pneumonia, infection-which may lead to an earlier death. Also important are other associated congenital abnormalities. ...Read more
Haven't seen numbers: Haven't seen any numbers on life expectancy of lennox-gastaut patients. Maybe nobody has collected and published that information. One website reported a 3%-7% mortality in patients over a 9 year period (that sounds like 1/2 % per year). The deaths were often due to accidents. In such disorders, if a person is watched and cared for closely, he can outlive parents, and die of other natural causes. ...Read more

Depends: It is always difficult to determine life expectancy of anyone with any type of chronic illness like hiv/aids. There are very good anti-hiv medications, which can extend life. Many of my patients who have had full-blown aids are still living 20+ years, but some have also died soon after diagnosis. It ultimately depends on one's immune system and how quickly they can recover before getting sick. ...Read more
Undetermined: Potential depends on the severity of the defect and associated features. Many die before birth and most have a brief existence.

Unknown: There have not really been longitudinal studies looking at the natural history of bronchiectasis overtime in patients without cystic fibrosis.

I think it is very difficult to give the patient with bronchiectasis a definitive lifespan estimate. ...Read more
What is the average life expectancy for a 63 year old male who has smoked and drank for all his adult life?
Do adults who survived a.L.L. At younger ages have a shorter life expectancy? If so, how long is the average?
May be, some: We are only 50 years or so since this cancer (all) became curable. There are some late complications which make us suspect that the ultimate age may be shortened by a few years. But I would not worry about it for another 10-20 years as most folks are doing fine in their 40s to 50s. ...Read more

My daughter has 22q11 deletion. One of the questions on here said that 38 was old for someone with di george. Is there an average life expectancy?
For genetic syndromes, things are changing rapidly. A child with a chromosomal disorder born 30 years ago would not have the life expectancy of a child born today with the same genetic disorder. There were many reasons children with 22q11.2 syndrome may have died in the past and most of these conditions are managed much better now and into the future. Life expectancy is constantly
improving. ...Read more
Up to >14 years.: The answer to this question differs with the affected individual, as no two cases are alike. However, it has been determined that the mean life expectancy after diagnosis is 7 years, with few cases (3%) living more than 14 years. It is still hard to be clear on this since individuals may have had alzheimer's for some time before diagnosis. ...Read more
Genetic disorder: Rare disorder multiple systems involved apearance of face and body demonstrates poor developement. Loss of hearing, diabetes, heart failure, aortic valve abnormalities, high blood pressure, just to name a few issues. Life expectancy depends on early diagnosis and intense treatment and follow up. It can be normal except if there heart defect that is serious. ...Read more

Should be normal: A small study showed that life expectancy after splenectomy is normal. That of course depends on the underlying illness dictating the need for splenectomy. Be sure that pneumonia vaccine, meningitis vaccine are taken. These vaccines help prevent severe infections which can occur after seen removal. ...Read more

Varies: Has a genetic mutation been discovered? There are several different types and it would be worthwhile finding whether one of these is present -- both for prognosis, and as information for the family. I'd try to answer this first, and even then, no one can predict months-or-years beyond giving a range / survival curves. Best wishes. ...Read more

Depends: It depends on the type of device (the newer devices heartmate ii and heartware) have longer life expectancies and fewer complications than 1st generation lvads. If an lvad is placed as destination therapy people have lived as long as 7 years without having device replace or a complication...However this is the exception no the rule. Newer devices quote averages of about 5 years. ...Read more
Depends: When a person needs a vad, life expectancy without it is short unless the VAD is placed. It all depends on the indication for the vad, the status of the other ventricle and the lungs and if it is a bridge to transplant or destination therapy, or a bridge to a bridge to transplant. The 5 year survival for a heart transplant is about 70%.Vad recipients may suffer complications like stroke, bleeding, . ...Read more
Depends upon health: Very variable. Current medical literature quotes 22% annual mortality rate which suggests 5 year survival rate. However, younger and otherwise healthy subjects can live 10 -20 years on dialysis. Kidney transplantation has a much better prognosis if and when there is choice. Some subjects only need tdialysis on temporary basis on temporary and recover kidney function. Others are 2 sick for transpl. ...Read more
Depends: There are 2 main categories of liver failure-- compensated or uncompensated. Compensated means that the liver while profoundly injured, can still perform basic functions. How long a person can live with liver failure depends on the reversibility of the injury and the severity of the injury. This can range from days to several months. Liver transplantation can be curative, in some cases. ...Read more
Varaiable: The answer to this question depends on what the three defects are, the individual severity of each of those defects, the treatments that have been provided, and the relative success of those treatments.

Which is the average life expectancy after having a left ventricular assist device, or lvad installed?
LVAD: Nowadays, 80–85% of patients are alive a year after having an lvad fitted and 70–75% after two years. This is fantastic considering that many of them would only have had a life expectancy of 12 months or less before their lvad treatment. One patient whom I know lived for 5.5 yrs (destination therapy). ...Read more

More info needed.:
Most likely it's not "spinal cancer", which would be a cancer that started in the spine, but a cancer from somewhere else that has spread (metastasized) TO the spine. If so, it's still the cancer of where it started (bone or breast or prostate, etc.).
Also, stage III vs. Stage IV have different enough treatment and prognosis that they should be considered separately; worth learning this detail). ...Read more
