What is Aortic Stenosis?

Aortic stenosis (AS) is one of the most common and serious valve disease problems.

The heart pumps blood through the aortic valve to the body. Over time, calcium buildup can narrow the valve opening and restrict blood flow to the heart. If left undiagnosed or untreated in a timely fashion, it can become more severe and can ultimately lead to heart failure and death.

Good news! Identifying aortic stenosis earlier leads to longer, healthier lives.

More than 20% of older Americans have aortic stenosis

Newly Diagnosed

If you were recently diagnosed with aortic stenosis, you probably have questions. Find out about symptoms, risk factors and treatments.

Monitor Your Symptoms

It’s important to track your symptom progression to determine if it is getting better or worse. You may not experience noticeable symptoms until the narrowed valve greatly reduces blood flow.

Opciones de tratamiento

AS can be treated and managing it appropriately can reduce the negative impact on your quality of life. If you notice a decline in routine physical activities or significant fatigue, it’s worth a visit to your health care professional.
