Hello. I'm Dr Chip
I means that the mitral valve leaflet is a little floppy and doesn't close completely and that allow a small amount of blood to flow backwards from the left ventricle into the left atrium chamber of the heart

In general it isn't dangerous and doesn't require treatment

Please let me know if you need any more information
