Hi I am new here and have a question about my dad. He is 81-years old, has been diagnosed with Aortic Valve Stenosis, and is in the queue to get a transcatheter implant in March. Even though it is less invasive than open-heart surgery, I worry that it will be very difficult for someone of his age to recover from this operation.
My question is: does anyone know an 80+ year old undergo aortic valve replacement, and what was the outcome like? I want to find out how tough the road ahead will be, so I can get prepared.
