Aortic Regurgitation

  • C. P. Bailey
  • J. Zimmerman


Aortic insufficiency is a clinical entity produced by diverse pathological lesions which interfere with the normal coaptation of the aortic valve cusps during cardiac diastole. This, usually, is the result either of true dearth of valve tissue due to destruction or contraction of the cusps or to circumferential dilation of the aortic root causing a relative dearth of tissue at the level of valve closure. In certain instances, while sufficient valve tissue may be present, malcoaptation may occur as is found in cases in which a cusp prolapses into or toward the left ventricle during diastole.
