Multiple: Perhaps the most common offending etiology in aortic stenosis in the us is atherosclerosis. Just as this can affect the arteries in the body, it can affect the tissues covering the aortic valve and then the plaque deposition and calcific degeneration of the valve leads to its problems. Rheumatic heart disease, not common in the us, is another common cause in third world countries.

Heart failure: The narrowing of the aortic valve blocks the heart from pumping blood to the rest of the body effectively and overworks the heart as well, further exacerabating the same problem. Thus the body suffers from a lack of oxygen with fatigue.
