Aortic stenosis is a heart condition affecting the aortic valve. The aortic valve is like a one-way door leading out of the heart. In aortic stenosis, the opening is narrowed, making it harder for the heart to pump blood through the valve. This page explains how aortic stenosis sometimes leads to problems like heart failure.
