Welcome to valveadvice.org. The information on this website has been developed by a team of patients who have experienced severe aortic valve disease, in collaboration with caregivers, clinicians, and researchers. The overarching goal of this website is to provide patients with information about severe aortic valve disease and access to a decision-assistance tool to help them take an active role in their own healthcare and make informed treatment decisions that incorporate their preferences and outcomes of interest.
