Aortic Valve Stenosis

Aortic stenosis causes narrowing or obstruction of the aortic valve and is most often due to accumulations of calcium deposits on the valve’s leaflets. The heart then works harder to pump blood around the body, which builds pressure in the lower left ventricle and hardens the heart muscle, causing chest pain.
