馃Υ The aortic valve controls the passage of blood馃└ from the heart to the entire body; it is the valve responsible for the outflow of blood. Over the years, it tends to calcify and narrow, resulting in what we know as aortic stenosis. About 3% of people over 75 years old have this condition. The most typical symptoms are chest pain, shortness of breath, and fainting (presyncope or syncope). They may also experience arrhythmias and, in advanced stages, heart failure馃挃. The diagnosis is initially made by listening to a characteristic murmur馃尙锔 during a physical examination馃┖ and then confirming it with a transthoracic echocardiogram. Through the Doppler examination of the echocardiogram, the exact degree of severity can be estimated, determining the need for treatment. More severe cases may require valve replacement, which currently, depending on each patient, may involve surgery or catheter-based techniques (such as TAVI). The importance of timely diagnosis and follow-up is to prevent complications.
