Untreated aortic stenosis is deadly, here’s what GPs need to know.

“Fifty percent of people with untreated aortic stenosis will die within two years of getting symptoms.”

So says Sydney cardiologist, Professor Andrew Sindone, who points out this is a significantly worse prognosis than most cancers.

And before you start thinking aortic stenosis is a rare valvular condition, on a recent Healthed podcast, Professor Sindone also explains that research suggests as many as one in eight Australians over the age of 75 has aortic stenosis.
