Surgical or transcatheter aortic valve replacement for symptomatic, severe AS results in significant improvement in survival and quality of life across a spectrum of surgical risk profiles.

The intensity of the murmur is related to the volume and velocity of transaortic flow, while the pitch is related to the transaortic pressure gradient and valve area. Both the intensity and pitch are related to sound conductivity through the pericardium, lungs, and chest wall. In general, a louder murmur with a higher pitch is associated with increased severity. However, in situations with decreased transaortic flow, with normal or decreased ejection fraction, or with COPD, obesity, or effusion, a low pitch murmur with low intensity may be auscultated in the presence of severe AS.
