In brief: Reasonably safe
Generally aortic valve replacement is a reasonably safe procedure.
The operative risks however depends on the overall condition of the heart, age, presence or absence of other problems such as lung and kidney disease and the overall physical strength of the patient. In most cases the surgical risk should be less than 5% chance of a bad outcome.
