Currently, it is possible to identify aortic valve stenosis before the baby is born through fetal cardiac ultrasound. If it is not detected before birth, the pediatrician will physically assess your child and request laboratory and imaging tests, such as a chest x-ray, electrocardiogram, cardiac ultrasound, or cardiac catheterization.
The treatment will be based on the tests’ results, your child’s age, health status, and expectations for the development of the disease, and it may include medication and surgical repair of the blocked valve so blood can circulate normally.
Most children with aortic stenosis surgery lead normal lives, but for several months they will need to take blood thinners and have continuous medical check-ups for life.
