The aorta is the body’s main artery that brings blood from your heart to the rest of your body. The aortic valve regulates blood flow between the aorta and the left ventricle of the heart. Aortic stenosis occurs when the aortic valve is hard or narrow, which reduces blood flow into the aorta and throughout the body. The team of children’s heart experts at Nemours Children's Cardiac Center is here to care for your child and treat their aortic stenosis. 

If your child has aortic valve stenosis, our specialists will discuss your concerns, answer your questions and provide treatment options. Our board-certified, fellowship-trained pediatric cardiologists and cardiothoracic surgeons (specialize in surgical procedures of the chest, including heart and lungs) will guide your child and your family from diagnosis through treatment and any supportive services you need.
