What is aortic valve regurgitation?

Aortic regurgitation is leakage of blood from the aorta into the left ventricle that occurs during diastole, the period when heart fills with blood after contraction (systole). It causes blood to flow back into the left ventricle from the aorta. It may be an acute condition or chronic.
