Be Aortic Stenosis Aware
Aortic Stenosis is a serious heart valve disease with the severe form affecting over 97,000 Australians. Symptoms are often discounted as age-related are contributing to AS being an underdiagnosed disease.1
Local data from the National Echo Database of Australia (NEDA) shows that 97,379 Australians have severe Aortic Stenosis.1
The burden of moderate to severe Aortic Stenosis in Australia is projected to grow to 200,000 patients in 2031 and 266,000 in 2051.2
Planning for aortic valve replacement (AVR) as soon as symptoms occur gives SAS patients a significantly better chance at survival. Without proper and timely intervention, your SAS patient's risk of death increases.4,5
