How It Works

The Aortic Valve ADVICE Risk Calculator estimates your likelihood of four different outcomes occurring in the first year after treatment for aortic valve disease:

  1. Discharge to home
  2. Days alive and out of the hospital
  3. Stroke
  4. Death

The information presented in this Calculator is based on the “average outcomes” of large groups of patients. There may be something very unique about your circumstance that would make this information less accurate for you. Your health care team will be able to help you understand whether this is the case. The Calculator was developed to help you have an informed conversation with your physician and health care team about whether SAVR or TAVR is the right treatment for you.
