What Causes A Fever When My Child Has Aortic Stenosis
I : I am not exactly sure what your question is but would be happy to help if you could provide more information. You are likely referring to congenital aortic stenosis which is caused by abnormal formation of the valve leaflets of the aortic valve which is the last valve that blood passes through as it leaves the heart.
