    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    T he aortic valve is the exit point for blood being pumped out of the heart to the rest of the body. If the aortic valve becomes damaged, usually due to calcification, this can result in what is known as “aortic stenosis”, or narrowing. Narrowing of the aortic valve limits the amount of oxygenated blood reaching vital organs, particularly when the body is working harder. In cases of severe aortic stenosis, it is necessary to replace the aortic valve with a prosthetic valve.
