Leakage or backflow of blood from the aorta through the aortic valve into the left ventricle.
Aortic valve in the heart has problems closing and blood leaks back through the valve into the heart.
An improper closing of the valve between the aorta and the left ventricle of the heart, permitting a backflow of blood.
An incomplete closing of the aortic valve, causing blood to flow backward into the left ventricle.
Improper closing of the aortic valve, allowing a back flow of blood.
Failure of the aortic valve to prevent backflow of oxygen-rich blood from aorta to left ventricle, resulting in dilatation, hypertrophy and ultimately failure of the pumping mechanism.
Aortic insufficiency (AI), also known as aortic regurgitation (AR), is the leaking of the aortic valve of the heart that causes blood to flow in the reverse direction during ventricular diastole, from the aorta into the left ventricle.
