DiseaseAORTIC STENOSIS
  
Quotation “Physicians wear their stethoscopes primarily in cafeterias”
  
DefinitionA congenital or acquired obstruction to systolic left ventricular outflow across the aortic valve.
  
PrognosisAortic stenosis is a progressive disease, and asymptomatic individuals would need careful periodic evaluation. Without surgery, the prognosis is poor with 50% 3 year mortality rate, once symptoms of angina, cardiac failure or syncopal attacks set in. sudden death can occur in 15-20% of patients with symptomatic aortic stenosis surgical mortality from valve replacement is 2-5%
