The Early Surgery or Conservative Care for Asymptomatic Aortic Stenosis (The RECOVERY Trial) was an open-label, parallel-group trial that recruited 145 patients with very severe aortic stenosis with a mean gradient of 50 mmHg or greater across the aortic valve). It showed that early surgery should be considered the modality of choice in patients with asymptomatic severe aortic stenosis considering the high rate of progression of the disease to a symptomatic state and amelioration of the risk of sudden death with early surgery.
