Severe Aortic Valve Stenosis
This narrowing reduces and restricts blood flow, requiring your heart to work harder. As a result, less oxygen-rich blood flows from your lungs to the rest of your body.
Severe aortic stenosis is a life-threatening condition. Your doctor may prescribe medications to ease the symptoms of your severe aortic stenosis. However, if the diseased valve is not replaced, your symptoms will probably worsen to heart failure and possibly even death. 1-3
