What do you know about aortic valve stenosis?

Aortic valve stenosis (AVS) is a degenerative disease that causes a narrowing of the heart’s aortic valve. This narrowing prevents the valve from opening fully, which obstructs the blood flow from the heart to the aorta and the rest of the body causing symptoms that, at advanced stages, can be life-threatening. Different treatments are available for this disease. In order to decide on the best therapeutic strategy for each patient, the MITMEVA project was launched.  This is a project carried out by the Hospital Clínic Cardiovascular Institute.
