Abstract

Aortic valve stenosis is considered one of the common and serious valve disease. This short review intends to
explore the Aortic Stenosis (AS) regarding chief symptoms, diagnostic tests, current treatment, and patient’s
education. The searching was carried out in electronic data bases: Google scholar and PubMed. The chief
symptoms of AS may consist of dyspnea and further symptoms of, angina, heart failure and syncope. The
past studies have revealed that medical treatment does not considerably influence disease development in
AS. Aortic valve replacement (AVR) is the first current treatment for symptomatic, hemodynamically severe
AS. Nurses and physicians have a vital function in educating patients.
