Aortic stenosis

A narrowing of the heart’s aortic valve, which prevents the valve from fully opening and obstructs the flow of blood from the heart into the aorta and the rest of the body.
When the blood flow through the aortic valve is reduced or blocked, your heart needs to work harder to pump blood to your body. Eventually, this extra work limits the amount of blood it can pump, and this can cause symptoms as well as possibly weaken your heart muscle.
