      Take-Away Points of the Presentation

      1) Physical exam is an essential tool in the primary care setting for early identification of asymptomatic severe valvular heart disease (VHD) and initiation of adequate follow-up.

      2) New VHD guidelines categorize four progressive stages from "at risk" to "symptomatic severe"- and lower the threshold for intervention in select patient populations.

      3) Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) and other catheter-based procedures have expanded patient options but increased the difficulty of discerning the risk-benefit ratio.
