How to Prevent Aortic Stenosis

Aortic stenosis cannot be prevented. However, if you have AS, there are several things you can do to try to avoid some of the complications:

  • Get regular medical care, including checkups and periodic electrocardiograms.
  • Take antibiotics before any dental cleaning, dental work, or other invasive procedures. This will help prevent infection of the heart valve.
  • If your valve problem was caused by rheumatic fever, talk to your doctor about antibiotic treatment to prevent future episodes of rheumatic fever.
