This session will provide an update on the management of older adults with severe aortic valve stenosis based on published clinical trials and practice guidelines. Learning Objectives: (1) discuss current testing and management of older adults with multimorbidity and severe aortic stenosis; (2) describe the TAVR procedure to better relate to the older adult being referred for consideration of valve replacement; (3) review the benefit, and harm of TAVR from a procedural standpoint in older adults with multiple geriatric conditions; and (4) assess approaches to addressing code status pre- and post-TAVR.
