Customer Question

I was told I have trace regurgitation and there was mention of ballerina foot and muscles that were flexible like that of an athlete. Are any of these things anything to worry about? Will the regurgitation get worse? I was told that these things were nothing to worry about but I don't understand especially the ballerina foot.

Thank you for your response. Can you explain what these findings are and do most people have them?
Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 7 months ago.

the trace regurg is normal It is like tiny back flow through a valve

the ballerina foot is the tendons that hold the valves to the heart wall. They are just more flexible.
