Aortic regurgitation is a problem the aortic valve can develop. A patient with aortic regurgitation can be difficult to evaluate because the patient can be symptomatic for a long period of time. The concern is that the left ventricle develops an overload from all of the blood rushing back into the ventricle, which causes it to become dilated. Anytime a patient develops a decrease in the function of their heart, with left ventricular dilation, doctors are quick to recommend an aortic valve replacement.
