This narrative review of stenosis covers pathophysiology, symptoms, diagnosis, and therapy. This paper provides good comparisons of the benefits and limitations of various imaging modalities.  The full range or treatment possibilities is briefly presented along with the corresponding evidence. This paper is probably the best concise broad overview of stenosis.
