Aortic Valve Regurgitation

Aortic Valve Regurgitation is an abnormality of the aortic valve that allows blood to flow backwards through the valve. The aortic valve normally allows blood to pass from the left ventricle into the aorta. From the aorta blood flows to the rest of the body. In aortic valve regurgitation, blood that is supposed to flow up through the aorta flows backward through the valve into the left ventricle of the heart.
