Aortic regurgitation is a lesion of valves which is tolerated for a very long time. Many people are asymptomatic. Dr. Sameer will highlight the guidelines when there is a need for surgery.

If arrhythmias in the form of atrial fibrillation is seen and even if patient is asymptomatic, then he needs to be operated.
