Aortic Valve Regurgitation

  • Aortic Valve Regurgitation

    Aortic valve regurgitation

    In an aortic valve regurgitation, the aortic valve doesn't close as it should. With each heartbeat, some of the blood leaks back through the aortic valve into the left ventricle. The body does not get enough blood, so the heart has to work harder to make up for it. See a picture of aortic valve regurgitation. Regurgitation is due to incompetence of the aortic valve or any disturbance of the valvular apparatus resulting in the diastolic flow of blood into the left ventricular chamber.
