  • Aortic Valve Stenosis

    Aortic stenosis is a progressive valvular disease, resulting in obstruction of blood flow through the aortic valve. One of the most prevalent heart diseases in the Western world, aortic stenosis is attributed to degenerative calcification of the valvular leaflets in senior patients. However, in the younger population,[…][]
