If you have any query after reading it, please ask.
Usually mild regurgitation does not require surgery.
Moderate to severe ones can need surgery.
However, other factors are taken into consideration like the size of left ventricle, ejection fraction, associated coronary artery disease etc.before deciding about the surgery.
I hope this information helps.
