Aortic calcification is very common in old age. Many times this is associated with diseases of aortic valve like choked valve or leaking valve (Please go through my website www.thefitheart.in for more details) or diseases of aorta itself. This may also be associated with deranged fat levels in the body or diseases of other blood vessels (like brain or kidney) in the body. Aortic calcification itself may not need a treatment but these diseases will definitely need some therapy. So please meet a qualified cardiologist and get your father thoroughly examined to plan further management. Hope this helps.
