Aortic regurgitation is a heart valve disease in which the aortic shutoff does not close tightly. Any problem that prevents the aortic shutoff from shutting totally can cause this issue. When the valve does not shut all the way, some blood returns each time the heart beats. When a large amount of blood returns, the heart must work tougher to displace sufficient blood to meet the body's needs. The left lower chamber of the heart broadens and the heart defeats very strongly. In time, the heart ends up being less able to supply sufficient blood to the body.
