Aortic Valvular Stenosis vs Aortic Valvular Sclerosis

Arch Intern Med. 2004;164(1):108-109. doi:10.1001/archinte.164.1.108-b

I thoroughly enjoyed the excellent editorial on aortic stenosis by Alpert.1 His masterly discussion of the relationship between aortic valvular sclerosis and aortic valvular stenosis, from both the prognostic and therapeutic points of view, is extremely important and most timely in view of the recent evidence that treatment of hypercholesterolemia may retard the progression of atherosclerotic aortic valvular sclerosis into stenosis.2
