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
