What is the average lifespan of someone with aortic stenosis if not corrected?

What is the average lifespan of someone with aortic stenosis if not corrected?

Depends on symptoms: Patients with uncorrected aortic stenosis have a poor survival: half of the patients that develop angina (chest pain) will die within 5 years, half of the patients that develop syncope (passing out) will die within 3 years, and half of the patients that develop heart failure will die within 2 years. Aortic valve replacement can pretty much normalize the life span and improve symptoms markedly. ...Read more

What would be the average lifespan of someone with aortic stenosis?

What would be the average lifespan of someone with aortic stenosis?

Vague question: You need t know the gradient across the stenosis.
