What Does No Significant Mitral Regurgitation Mean
VERY MILD valve leak: Trace means 'very mild' and mitral valve regurgitation means 'leak'. It happens when your mitral valve doesn't close tightly, which allows blood to flow backward in your heart. When the 'leak' is moderate-severe you may develop symptoms of tiredness & fatigue. The worst thing: 'heart failure' requiring heart surgery and valve replacement (but you are no where near that stage) so, no worries here. ...Read more
Mitral regurgitation or mitral insufficiency or mitral incompetence is a disorder of the heart in which the mitral valve, separating left atrium and left ventricle does not close properly. When the heart pumps out blood from the left atrium to the left ventricle through the incompetent valve, it leads to the abnormal leaking of blood from the left ventricle back ...Read more

When the ventricle contracts, the mv is closed and no blood goes backward into the la unless regurgitation is present. Then the blood leaks backward, overfilling the la and raising the pressure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
