In brief: Blockage

It is a blockage of the valve leading from the heart.
This can result in heart failure and a decrease in the ability of the heart to output blood to the rest of the body due to blockage in the aorta.

It is thickening of the leaflets of the valves that ultimately restricts motion and prevents adequate blood to be pumped from the left ventricle to the rest of the body through the aorta.

In brief: Valve disease

Aortic stenosis is the inability of the aortic valve to open completely.
The symptoms of aortic stenosis may resemble other medical conditions or heart problems.Acquired aortic stenosis may occur after a strep infection that progresses to rheumatic fever.
