​Can a small, acute aortic valve tear heal itself? I had a small anterior flail leaflet that was causing aortic regurgitation. Based on the sudden drop in my diastolic blood pressure (from 80 to 30s), and no previous murmur, the tear could have happened acutely during heavy squats.

However, my diastolic blood pressure was steadily improving thereafter, over a period of two. Would it be possible for the valve to heal itself? All a moot point, but a question nonetheless.
