This discussion is related to Valve regurgitation.

Nothing to worry about. Trivial and mild regurgitation of the Mitral valve is common. A heart valve allows blood to pass in just one direction but sometimes they leak because they don't fully close properly, allowing a small amount of blood to leak backwards. The cardiologist will likely look at all the other results of the scan to ensure there is no obvious cause which could make it worse. If one is found then it will be treated.The biggest cause of valve problems is high blood pressure.
