Is a root canal safe to do one week before aortic valve replacement? Or better to wait 6 months after surgery?

In brief: Root Canal Therapy

This should be discussed with your own dentist in consult with your Cardiologist and not a dentist over the internet who lacks more information then what you posted.
Generally speaking if an infection is present this needs to be dealt with prior to the surgery.
