For our Health Resource of the Week, we test your knowledge of aortic stenosis.

Aortic stenosis occurs when the heart's aortic valve, the main outlet for blood to be pumped to the body, becomes narrowed over time. It's more common with age and, if left untreated, can lead to significantly decreased quality of life, heart failure, and even death. 

So, how much do you know about this disease? And are you at risk? Take our quiz by clicking on the image below:

Once you are done taking the quiz, be sure to visit our aortic stenosis information page.
