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
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.
