thank you.
i am so sad for your husbands condition.
the pain may occur due to aortic stenosis itself or it may be associated with ischemic heart disease.
aortic valve replacement is needed in symptomatic case.
before operation it is mandatory to do angiogram to exclude coronary artery disease.
now, the question about the pulmonary valve replacement.
why it is needed?
is there associated valvular problem?
all inv. report is needed to check before giving a comment.
take care.
