In brief: In most cases
If the indication is clear and there are no major contraindications or concomitant diseases, age per se is not a reason to decline cardiac valvular surgery, especially at only 66 years of age.
This is best left to the attending cardiologist and consulting cardiothoracic surgeon to discuss with the patient and family.
