Aortic Stenosis Symptoms

Dr. Allan Stewart, Chief of Cardiac Surgery at Miami Cardiac and Vascular Institute, explains the aortic valve is the part of the body that moves the most. "By the time you've gotten to about 75, 80 years old it's done that trillions of times and like any movable part in any engine wears out."

He says it gets thicker and that prevents the valve from opening and closing and we are short of breath and we don't have that same strength.
