Aortic valve stenosis is also called as Aortic stenosis, which occurs when the hearts aortic valve narrows. This narrowing prevents the valve from opening fully, which reduces or blocks blood flow from your heart into the main artery to your body (aorta) and onward to the rest of your body.
Left untreated, aortic valve stenosis can lead to serious heart problems.
Bicuspid aortic valve is one type of Aortic stenosis.
