Aortic Stenosis Coronary Artery Bypass Graft CABG
What is aortic stenosis?
Aortic stenosis is a condition mostly affecting elderly people where the aortic heart valve opening, becomes smaller, leading to increased strain on the heart and reduces the volume of blood flowing out into the body. This gives rise to many unpleasant and often debilitating symptoms like
- Chest pain
- Feeling faint or dizzy
- Feeling short of breath
Treatment involves correcting the damaged valve by open heart surgery, but not all patients may be fit to undergo such a strenuous procedure
