Aortic sclerosis (aortic valve calcification without obstruction to blood flow, considered a precursor of calcific degenerative calcific aortic stenosis) increases in incidence with age and is present in 29% of individuals older than 65 years and in 37% of individuals older than 75 years. In elderly persons, the prevalence of aortic stenosis is between 2% and 9%.
