An aorta is the largest artery in the human body supplying clean, oxygenated blood to the entire circulatory system. Aortic valve stenosis is a condition where the aorta of the heart gets blocked. The disease can be diagnosed by an experienced Cardiologist by clinical examination, studying the Echocardiogram (‘Echo’), CT angiogram and a few other tests.

1) Blood test

2) ECG

3) Echocardiogram

4) Heart Beat Monitoring

5) Stress Test

Medications can be prescribed to improve the heart’s ability to pump blood which may help compensate for a valve that isn’t working correctly.
However, a diseased heart valve is a mechanical problem that cannot be fixed with medication alone, and surgery is often needed to repair or replace the damaged valve.
Once it is determined that a diseased heart valve needs treatment, the available choices are valve repair or valve replacement.
