Normal finding: The mitral and tricuspid valves are the valves between the upper and lower chambers of the heart. When the heart contracts a tiny amount of blood may go backwards through the valves. This is called physiological regurgitation and is normal. When it becomes significantly more it may cause symptoms. Thanks for trusting HealthTap!
