I have mild asymptomatic aortic valve stenosis that has remained unchanged for five years. Does everyone with aortic valve stenosis have surgery?

1 doctor agrees

In brief: No

if remains without symptoms and size of stenosis doesn't become critical, surgery may not be needed.
you should follow with your internist or cardiologist
