Answer

Inpatient care is required for most patients with severe acute aortic regurgitation (AR), particularly patients with symptoms or evidence of hemodynamic decompensation. Patients with severe chronic AR may be followed as inpatients or outpatients, depending on the stage of their disease and severity of their symptoms and LV dysfunction.
