    2) Aortic Regurgitation

    Incompetence of the aortic valve, resulting in diastolic backflow of blood into the left ventricle causes aortic regurgitation. Isolated aortic valve disease is uncommon in rheumatic heart disease. Chronic aortic regurgitation occurs more frequently in combination with mitral stenosis.

    3) Aortic Stenosis

    Pathologic changes of aortic valve, resulting in obstruction to blood flow causes aortic stenosis. It does not occur in isolation but is present in association with aortic regurgitation or mitral valve disease.
