Hi Casssandra,

 

There's been a whole discussion on agent orange and heart disease. Here's the link:

Maybe someone has posted information on aortic stenosis.

 

All the best,

My husband was in Vietnam in 1970 he died 5 1/2 yrs. ago with artery disease.  He had several arota aneurysm surgery with also a valve replacement.  His very last surgery was succesful then he caught every infection the hospital had started bleeding internally and couldnt be opened back up due to the infections.  I always wondered where all of this could have came from.  Sorry to hear about your husband.
