In brief: Leaky valve

Aortic regurgitation describes blood flowing backwards through the aortic valve of the heart because the valve doesn't close completely.
This can be detected by listening for a specific type of heart murmur and doing an echocardiogram. Depending on the severity and associated problems with heart function, surgery may be necessary to correct some cases.
