Hi! I’m wondering what is aortic valve replacement. My mother told me yesterday that my aunt some kind of heart disease and that she will have aortic valve replacement. My mother could not explain me that because she also doesn’t know exactly what is it. I hope that it’s not something dangerous.

Aortic valve replacement is the most common surgical treatment for aortic valve stenosis. Surgeons will remove the narrowed aortic valve and replace it with a mechanical valve or a tissue valve from a pig, cow or human-cadaver donor. Replacement of the aortic valve involves open-heart surgery, performed with general anesthesia.
