Hi,thanks for query.Aortic valve is an important valve of heart which regular and allows the oxygenated blood to flow from heart to aorta and which in turn goes to main circulation.When ever there is some disease in valve it can lead to problems like heart failure,infection etc and can create problems like difficulty breathing on exertion,chest pain etc.Please take a second opinion from another cardiologist and then decide.
wishing you speedy recovery.
