Aortic Stenosis XPLAINED written by doctors, for patients.

Psoriasis Xplained. Written by Doctros, for Patients.

What is Aortic Stenosis XPLAINED?

Medical jargon can be confusing, but we take away that confusion through an easy-to-understand story. Aortic Stenosis Xplained follows Gordon’s and Candice’s journey with Aortic Stenosis and valve replacement surgery in an engaging, informative and entertaining story. Through this illustrated flip-through story, learn about the early symptoms, complicated medical concepts, support groups and the emotional roller coaster that comes with being diagnosed with and treated for aortic stenosis. Be sure to check it out today.

Find a Heart Team


Just like Gordon's story, getting help often starts with visiting your GP to get a referral to a cardiologist. If you are diagnosed with severe aortic stenosis your cardiologist can send you onto a ‘heart team’ where they specialise in Transcatheter aortic valve implantation (TAVI) treatments like Gordon’s.

The heart team is a group of doctors who work together to provide each patient with the best treatment options for their medical condition. The members of the heart team may vary depending on the hospital and the diagnosis and include an interventional cardiologist and a cardiothoracic surgeon, along with your primary cardiologist.

Put your postcode in and see the heart teams near you.
