Question Infective endocarditis prophylaxis new guidelines

do GI/GU procedures require prophylaxis? And what about AS/AR/MS/MR?
can someone please provide me with the most recent guidelines.
Actually the video( I'm watching the old ones) says the above mentioned conditions require it but MTB2 says they don't???
