Purpose: The purpose of this article is to provide an overall review of aortic stenosis including pathophysiology, historical and physical presentations, diagnostic evaluations, and treatment options.

Method: A review will be completed by utilizing literature libraries of peer-reviewed research articles. When utilizing PubMed, 14 articles discussing aortic stenosis were identified and will be used to complete this review. Additional sources may be used as the project develops over time.

Results: A review of aortic stenosis can offer benefits to those practicing in Cardiology, Cardiothoracic Surgery, Primary Care, and Emergency Medicine.

Conclusion: Aortic stenosis is one of several cardiac valvular disorders that can inhibit appropriate cardiac function. By completing a review of aortic stenosis, practitioners will be more prepared in the future to recognize and treat this cardiac valvular disease which may lead to better outcomes for patients.
