Our expert says:
Aortic stenosis should be heard when listening to the heart sounds with a stethoscope but remember that if aortic stenois is not profound, it will not be audible with a stethoscope. Your mother's aortic stenosis could only now have reached a point where it is audible with a stethoscope. Yes, mistakes are made and clinical signs are missed. If you have any symptoms of concern, especially heart palpitations and chest pain, you should consult your cardiologist as soon as possible. People at risk for heart disease should be more aware of any symptoms.
A stent is very successful and it will last at least 8 to 10 years.
