Management of Aortic Regurgitation: A Review Article

1. Abstract

1.1. Introduction: Aortic regurgitation occurs due to incomplete closure of the aortic valve leaf which can result from abnormalities in the aortic valve, valve support structures (aorta and annulus), or both. Diseases that often affect the valve leaflets include aortic bicuspid, and other congenital disorders, degeneration of aortaclerosis, infective endocarditis, rheumatic heart disease, connective or inflammatory tissue disease, antiphospholipid syndrome. Based on the time of occurrence, chronic aortic regurgitation and chronic aortic regurgitation can be distinguished.
