Aortic valve stenosis

Aortic valve stenosis: Introduction

Aortic valve stenosis: A congenital condition involving a malformation of the valve that controls the blood flow of the main heart vessel (aorta). The valve doesn't open enough to allow sufficient blood to flow through the aorta which reduces the supply of oxygenated blood to the body. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Aortic valve stenosis is available below.
