Aortic stenosis: If you have hemodynamically significant aortic stenosis, then being accepted for the military is unlikely.

Unlikely: If you have aortic stenosis, your exercise capacity will be somewhat limited (depending on the degree of stenosis), so it's unlikely you will be able to join the military.

Regardless, I would recommend a cardiology consultation to find out why the aortic stenosis is present & rule out congenital abnormalities. This is normally found in older patients or in patients with history of rheumatic fever There may be long term consequences.
