Welcome to ADVICE!
Deciding between a surgical aortic valve replacement or a transcatheter aortic valve replacement to treat your aortic stenosis is difficult. Understanding the personal risks associated with these two very different treatments may help you with the decision-making process.
For each treatment, the Aortic Valve ADVICE Risk Calculator estimates the following:
- Your chances of being discharged to home instead of a skilled nursing facility.
- The number of days alive and out of the hospital within 1 year.
- Your risk of stroke within 1 month and 1 year.
- Your risk of death within 1 year.
This Calculator is designed to facilitate a discussion between you and your physician on which treatment option is right for you.
