In brief: Narrowed heart valve

The aortic valve is between the left ventricle and the aorta.
It ensures that blood flows from the heart to the body and not backwards. When the valve is malformed, it does not open fully and the ventricle must work harder to push blood to the body. The medical term for this condition is stenosis.
