Around 30%-45% patients with acute rheumatic fever (ARF) then develop RHD. The prognosis of rheumatic heart disease (RHD) usually refers to the possible outcomes of the disease, including the duration, chances of complications, recovery prospects and period, and survival and death rates. The prognosis is based on the general picture and is unpredictable by its nature. The exact prognosis for those with RHD depends on the type and extent of damage to the heart valves, muscle or outer membrane.
