Core Tip Severe heart valve diseases are not uncommon in the elderly and often treatment may be challenging due to high risks related both to relevant comorbidities and the frailty condition of elderly patients. Although surgery is still the first choice for most conditions, interventional strategies are emerging as a valid alternative both in high and intermediate risk patients. Careful evaluation is needed for each individual patient in order to establish the more appropriate strategy considering that the impact on the quality of life may be more relevant in this population than the effects on survival, already limited by decreased life expectancy related to ageing.
