The aortic valve is heavily calcified and does not open well. The degree of stenosis cannot be quantified from this view, but with excursion this limited the assumption should be that the patient has severe stenosis until it is proven otherwise. In addition to aortic valve calcification, the mitral annulus is heavily calcified, there is left ventricular hypertrophy, and the left atrium is enlarged.
