I Have Mild To Moderate Aortic Regurgitation Will It Get Worse
Aortic regurgitation: Minimal aortic regurgitation may not progress. Moderate or worse aortic regurgitation generally gradually results in progression of the problem over years. It is prudent to monitor the situation periodically to see if progression is happening. Echocardiography is very useful for this purpose. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Aortic regurgitation is reflux of blood through an incompetent aortic valve into the left ventricle during ventricular diastole (relaxation). During ventricular systole (contraction), blood is pumped from the left ventricle into the aorta. Because of a leaky aortic valve, the pumped blood returns ...Read more
I've been told I have MVP and there are a few pixels of aortic regurgitation is this a normal
finding or will it get worse ?
As previously: answered. These findings do not have predictive value. Repeat evaluations over the next several years will provide you with some indication of progression or stability of the valvular involvement but a single data point at this time will not be predictive. ...Read more
I have MVP with a ballerina foot pattern and trivial aortic regurgitation. How likely is this to get worse? Is the ballerina foot cardiomyopathy?
There is no good: way to predict the progression of your MVP. The fact that you also may have aortic valve involvement would suggest on clinical grounds that you might be at more risk for progression than others but again there is no way to predict this with certainty. This is not a cardiomyopathy. ...Read more
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. ...Read more

Qualitative?: The aortic valve is the valve that connects the heart (left ventricle, a pumping chamber) with the aorta (the blood vessel that carries blood throughout the body. Aortic stenosis means that there is not free forward flow through the aortic valve, or in other words, there is obstruction. Aortic regurgitation means that there is back flow through the aortic valve from the aorta back to the heart. ...Read more
