During the last years, there has been a quick and impressive development in the management of patients with aortic stenosis and mainly in TAVI treatment, with the recent expansion of indications. The webinar should analyse the new 2017 ESC VHD Guidelines and underline the new items about aortic stenosis management within deep discussion of clinic and management, particularly about TAVI new indications and limitations. Guidelines should help the General Cardiologists to have a clear vision of this progress and to apply the current evidence-based knowledge about the topic, particularly about the timing of an intervention and the choice about the kind of intervention (surgical or interventional).
