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 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

For your pregnancy & delivery you should absolutely receive care in a center with "high risk" obstetrics specialists and experts in congenital heart disease. Super important! Go now! ...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

Could aortic regurgitation be causing the pounding feeling I get after exercise? Heart beats uncomfortably hard and can see heart beating off chest
Yes.: Aortic regurgitation (leaking of the aortic valve), if severe enough, can cause palpitations and prominent pulses as well as enlargement of the heart to the point where one can see the pulsations on the chest wall. The degree of aortic valve leaking can readily be seen on an echocardiogram. ...Read more
Is it normal to see your neck veins/ pulse pulsing slightly never feel it but see it in mirror close up have mild aortic regurgitation?
Carotid artery: If you are in an upright position, you are seeing the pulsation of your carotid artery since the jugular venous pulse would be below the level of your clavicle (and invisible) when you are sitting up or standing. It is normal to see the carotid, especially in thin and/or muscular people. You must be fit! AR does accentuate it as well. ...Read more
I was diagnosed with pvc, aortic regurgitation, moderate mitral regurgitation, tricuspid regurgitation, hyperlipemia, & adv diastolic dys. Prognosi?
Hard to answer: You have several valves which are leaking. You only mention moderate amount of mitral regurge. But more important is the size of the pumping chambers of your heart and the ejection fraction (how well it squeezes). You have had a stress test so did it show evidence of blockages? There are many people with mild or moderate leaking valves who do very well. You need to discuss with you doctor. ...Read more
