In brief: Too broad
If the valve is replaced in a timely fashion then life expectancy is good.
If left untreated and is severe, life expectancy is severly limited . The ultimate measure of the pts long term mortality is the left ventricular ejection fraction. The more normal it is the better the mortality rates.
