Aortic Valve Stenosis: Are You at Risk?
Aortic valve stenosis is the most common valve problem in people over age 65. If left untreated, it can lead to serious heart problems. Join us to learn about this condition, including who is at risk and how it is treated.
Aortic valve stenosis occurs when the heart's aortic valve narrows, blocking blood flow and forcing the heart to work harder—and weakening it over time.
Symptoms of Aortic Valve Stenosis:
- Chest pain or tightness
- Feeling faint or dizzy
- Shortness of breath
- Rapid, fluttering heartbeat
Talk with your doctor if you have aortic valve stenosis or suspect you are at risk.
