In brief: Not at present
Valvular aortic stenosis describes the presence of a valve that is malformed .
Like putting a 1/2 inch pipe fixture on a 1 inch water line, it restricts the flow of fluid thru it. It must be stretched or replaced. I have read of research to build body parts( the correct size) using stem cells and acellular matrix, but availibility is years down the road if ever.
