New AHA/ACC Guidelines for 2014

Patients who have undergone valve replacement are not cured but still have serious heart disease. Patients have exchanged native valve disease for prosthetic valve disease and must be followed with the same care as those with native valve disease.

Either a bioprosthetic or mechanical valve is reasonable in patients between 60 y and 70 y of age.
