mitral regurgitation

And what is the treatment to cure mitral regurgitation?

I had an echo performed recently and it showed mitral regurgitation, tricuspid regurgitation and aortic sclerosis.

This discussion is related to Mitral Regurgitation and Tricuspid..

It isn't just a case of regurgitation, it depends on how bad the regurgitation is. Mitral regurgitation (trivial/mild) is very common. There can be causes for regurgitation and without further information, it would be total guess work. Treatment is a decision bases on the cause, and if leaking too much, then valve repair with surgery is required, or valve replacement if the valves are too damaged.
