A valve problem: Aortic stenosis is a hardening of the last valve in the heart; this valve is the last thing blood passes through before it is sent out to the body. As you would expect, this valve is called the aortic valve. Symptoms of aortic stenosis can include chest pain, passing out and heart failure symptoms. The treatment of severe aortic stenosis is almost always surgical.
