My cousin needs to go to aortic valve replacement. I know that this kind of surgery is not so dangerous and I don’t worry too much. Still, you never know what can happen. But I’m wondering how long can aortic valve replacement last? Would he need to have another one after few years?

I hear that doctors usually say that repaired valve can possibly last a lifetime but the most of patients will require a valve replacement within ten or fifteen years. Biological valves may last 15 years or longer, without decline in function. But mechanical valves are very durable and are designed to last a lifetime.

I have had two aortic valve replacements, the first I was given a tissue valve and after a year it leaked so after another year I was given a titanium valve which I have had for 18 years and still going strong

I had a bovine (cow) valve to replace my aortic valve in 2003. In the next 1 to 4 years I will have another one installed.
I found that I was weak for 2 months after the operation but then I felt great. The success rate on these operations is very high and getting higher. You will be fine.
