stenosis is an abnormal narrowing in a blood vessel or tubular organ.

There are many types of stenosis depending on the structure affected

Vascular stenotic lesions include:

Peripheral artery stenosis Angina (coronary artery stenosis) Carotid artery stenosis  Renal artery stenosis


 Stenosis in heart valves are:

Pulmonary valve stenosis Mitral valve stenosis Tricuspid valve stenosis Aortic valve stenosis

Stenosis of other bodily structures/organs include:

Pyloric stenosis  Lumbarcervical or thoracic spinal stenosis Tracheal stenosis Atherosclerosis


atherosclerosis infection Diabetes inflammation neoplasm smoking


Stenosis of the vascular type are often associated with unusual blood sounds resulting from turbulent flow over the narrowed blood vessel. This sound can be made audible by a stethoscope, but diagnosis is confirmed with some form of medical imaging.
