what is the meaning of mild aortic regurgitation?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Martin Raff

Leakage: The aortic valve, when closed, prevents blood from rushing back into the left ventricle from which it has just been expelled by contraction of that chamber during systole. When there is some form of abnormality to the valve there may be leakage back into the left ventricle during diastole. Therefore, the blood is regurgitating back.
