Constriction (abnormal narrowing) of the connection between the left ventricle and the aorta.
A narrowing of the opening of the aortic valve that blocks the flow of blood from the left ventricle into the aorta.
abnormal narrowing of the aortic valve
Heart valve that doesn't open all the way, inhibiting the flow of blood.
Narrowing of the aorta. Read more: Causes, symptoms, diagnosis, treatment.
A narrowing of the aortic valve combined with a thickening or stiffening of its cusps (flaps or leaflets).
A narrowed aortic valve. The narrowing can be caused by leaflet fusin, thickening, calcification, infection, or from a congenital malformation of the valve. Regarless, once the opening mechanism of the valve is restricted
Narrowing (stenosis) of the heart valve between the left ventricle of the heart and the aorta. This narrowing impedes the delivery of blood through the aorta to the body and makes it tough for the heart to carry out this Herculean task. A normal aortic valve has three leaflets or cusps, but a stenotic valve may have only one cusp (unicuspid) or two cusps (bicuspid), which are thick. stiff and stenotic. Some children with aortic stenosis have chest pain, unusual fatigue, dizziness or fainting. Many children have few or no symptoms. The need for surgery depends on the degree of stenosis. Although surgery may enlarge the stenotic valve the valve remains deformed and eventually may need to be replaced with an artificial one. A procedure called balloon valvuloplasty has been used in some children with aortic stenosis. Persons with aortic stenosis need medical follow-up all their lives since even mild stenosis may worsen over time and need treatment.
A narrowing of the valve opening between the left ventricle of the heart and the large artery called the aorta. The narrowing may occur at the valve itself or slightly above or below the valve. Aortic Stenosis may be the result of scar tissue forming after a rheumatic fever infection, or may have other causes.
Narrowing of the aorta or its orifice usually due to disease of the valve.
narrowing of the opening of the aortic valve (the valve that regulates blood flow from the left ventricle into the aorta).
This is a narrowing of the opening of the aortic valve in the heart.
a narrowing which restricts red blood from moving from the left ventricle into the aorta
progressive narrowing of the heart's aortic valve that obstructs the passage of blood from the left ventricle into the aorta. Chronic stenosis can lead to left ventricular enlargement and congestive heart failure.
Narrowing of the aortic valve opening, causing obstruction of blood flow into the circulation. The condition causes the heart to work harder and the muscle in the wall of the left ventricle (lower chamber) to thicken.
A narrowing of the aortic valve, causing the left ventricle to work harder but limiting the amount of blood that can be pumped forward into the aorta.
narrowing of the opening of the aortic valve in the heart, which increases resistance to blood flow from the left ventricle to the aorta; commonly a birth defect or caused by scarring and calcium accumulation in the valve from rheumatic fever
A narrowing or stiffness of the aortic valve causing an obstruction to blood flow; this results in an increased workload for the heart.
obstruction of the blood flowing from the left ventricle to the aorta.
