The aortic valve and aorta work together to supply oxygen-rich blood throughout your body. The valve is responsible for making sure blood flows out of the heart to the aorta. The aorta is the main artery that blood flows through from the heart to the rest of your body.

When the aorta and/or aortic valve are affected by a disease or condition it can increase your risk for life-threatening events. It is crucial to know and understand the latest treatment options available if you have been diagnosed with a condition related to the aortic valve or aorta.
