Can anybody explain to me what happens in regurgitation and if regurgitation is connected to any other health issues? Thank you so much!

Hello! Acute mitral regurgitation is a disorder in which the heart's mitral valve suddenly does not close properly and causes blood to leak into the left atrium (upper heart chamber) when the left ventricle (lower heart chamber) contracts. It is called back flow. From what I know, mild cases of mitral valve regurgitation cause few problems, but more severe cases eventually weaken the heart and lead to heart failure.
