Can exercise be harmful if you have aorta valve stenosis?

In brief: Yes

Depending on the severity of the valve stenosis.
IF severe, then no exercise because your body will need more blood to circulate and as there is a stenosis (narrowing), your heart will not be able to pump blood out, and then you could pass out and/or have an arrhythmic effect, or have cheat pain.
