Survival Rates of SAS Patients with and without SAVR

Patients with severe aortic stenosis (SAS) ages 80+ who underwent surgical aortic valve replacement (SAVR) have 1-year, 2-year, and 5-year survival rates of 87%, 78%, and 68% respectively — compared with 52%, 40%, and 22% for those patients who did not have surgery.
