    Aortic regurg is building of each one of these valvular heart diseases. As we go through each individual one, everything comes to light as it has been, hopefully. Once we are done discussing all valvular heart diseases, it is important that you keep going back and reviewing each one because it is easier otherwise to mix them up and you know exactly what I am referring to. With aortic regurg, the problem is blood is coming back from the aorta. What I would like for you to do is think about the anatomy of arch of aorta, and it's coming back towards the left ventricle and when it does so, where is the best place that you might perhaps hear this murmur again? It was located in the third intercostal space and it will be the left parasternal. At least know that you are moving towards the apex. If by chance you don't find the third intercostal space left parasternal as being an answer choice you don't find that as being an option on a picture on your screen of a chest, then you move towards the apex. I hope that is clear. That is the only way that you will get any of these questions right without causing further confusion. Ok. Once you are going to start bringing about regurg, completely different when compared to aortic stenosis. In what respect? In the respect of how the left ventricle is going to respond technically? Why am I saying that? Because the response overall granted whenever that the left ventricle is undergoing undue pressure either from volume or from pressure itself the left ventricle is going to undergo hypertrophy. Is that clear? So whenever the left ventricle is facing adversity it is going to try to adapt and rise to the...
