Answer

For patients who are hospitalized for severe AR in facilities without appropriate cardiovascular and surgical expertise, transfer may be justified to optimize clinical outcomes. For outpatients with stable but severe AR, longitudinal care by a cardiologist with appropriate expertise is recommended.
