aortic stenosis

What is aortic valve stenosis?

Aortic stenosis or aortic valve stenosis as the name indicates the narrowing of the aortic valve of the heart. The aorta is the main artery carrying out oxygenated blood out of the heart. When blood enters the aorta from the heart’s left ventricle it passes through the valve known as the aortic valve. Narrowing of the aortic valve, when a passage of blood flow through valve decreases this condition is termed as aortic stenosis.

When aortic valve is obstructed, the heart needs more energy to work harder to pump blood to other parts of the body. With time this extra work by the heart limits the amount of blood it can pump and may weaken the heart muscle, and leading to symptoms such as fatigue and dizziness.

What are the factors which leads to the aortic stenosis?

Following are the risk factors which leads to the aortic stenosis:

-A deformed aortic valve- in some individuals they are born with a congenital narrowed aortic valve or develop aortic valve stenosis later in life because they were born with a bicuspid aortic valve with two flaps instead of three.

-Age-Aortic valve stenosis risk increase with age and the buildup of calcium deposits on heart valves.

-Previous rheumatic fever- Rheumatic fever can lead to stiffness of flaps and fuse, with time which leads to aortic valve stenosis.

-High blood pressure.

-High cholesterol.

-Type 2 diabetes.

-Smoking.

The other causes which can lead to the formation of aortic stenosis are as follows:
