Answer

Exercise treadmill testing may be used to guide recommendations for surgical therapy in patients with severe chronic AR and equivocal symptoms. [4] However, the role of stress echocardiography in patients with AR remains uncertain, and further studies may be needed before it can be recommended for routine clinical use. [28]
