The heart has many valves and chambers to allow blood to enter and be released in order for the body to work. Some major valves in the heart are the aortic valve, tricuspid valve and the mitral valve.

These valves play important roles and if there is a problem with one of them, it can affect a person’s heart. One issue in particular is called mitral valve regurgitation and it occurs when the valve does not close properly allowing blood to flow backward into the upper heart chamber. When this happens there can be a lack of blood flow to the rest of the body that can ultimately lead to congestive heart failure.
