Severe Aortic Stenosis in Patients Referred for Valve Surgery (SAS)
Our main hypothesis on the present study is that new parameters such as risk-taking behavior, patients motivation, health related quality of life, new biomarkers and more precise echocardiography measures in addition to traditional parameters will improve pre-operative risk assessment in patients with AS and better guide patients and doctors in decision whether to operate or not.

|Study Type:||Observational [Patient Registry]|
|Study Design:||Observational Model: Case-Only
Time Perspective: Prospective
|Target Follow-Up Duration:||1 Year|
|Official Title:||A Prospective Longitudinal Study of Severe Aortic Stenosis in Elderly and Outcome of Aortic Surgery.|
- Death due cardiovascular events [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
- MACE ( Major cardiovascular events ) [ Time Frame: 30 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Cerebral complications (stroke/bleeding), bleeding, renal failure, arrythmias, needs for pacemaker, prolong ICU stay, wound infections
- Change in Health related Quality and function one year after inclusion [ Time Frame: one year ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Patients in the study perform Short Form-36, EuroQual-5D at inclusion and one year after. We want to compare the result of their scoring to obtain the gain in HRQoL of the intervention
