Aortic Stenosis. With or without anemia aortic stenosis is bad and if it is truly symptomatic should be treated. Anemia should be evaluated. If your usual level of exercise is causing symptoms see a cardiologist. You need an operation!

Imaging. Imaging tests are an indirect way of evaluating the various organ systems. Some tests provide numeric values with an attached range of 'normal values'which are meant to be a guide to be used for the clinician when correlating the test findings with the patients complaints and examination findings. Numbers can be erroneous due to technical factors or irrelevant in a specific patient (eg body size). Read more...

Longer on average. The decision whether to use surgery to treat aortic stenosis (as) is based on weighing the risk of the surgery against the risk of leaving the as alone. If it is severe, as can damage the heart and result in a shorter life expectancy. If the risk of surgery is lower than the risk of as, then on the average surgery should result in an improved life expectancy. Read more...
