The heart pumps oxygen-rich blood throughout our body. Certain health condiitons cause the narrowing of the aortic valve, which is responsible for directing blood from the heart’s left ventricle to the body via the aorta. This results in restriction of blood flow, causing heart and breathing conditions. Let’s explore the risk factors of aortic stenosis.


What are The Risk Factors of Aortic Stenosis?

Aortic stenosis usually occurs due to conditions like atherosclerosis and endocarditis. However, some factors can make it develop faster, such as:

  • Age: Beyond 70 years of age significantly increases the risk of aortic valve stenosis due to natural damage.
  • Congenital heart defects: This condition can occur if specific abnormalities such as bilateral aortic valves are present at birth.
  • Chronic kidney disease: This condition weakens the body’s ability to eliminate waste products, which can lead to valve stiffness.

Remember that age, certain heart defects, and chronic health conditions like high blood pressure are major aortic stenosis risk factors. Don’t wait for symptoms – get tested early to keep your heart healthy. Health insurance policy can aid in covering the costs of treating this condition.
