This is an example of a decrescendo murmur starting early in diastole.

The first and second heart sounds are normal.

The decrescendo murmur is high pitched. The anatomy tab shows a enlarged left ventricle with normal contractility. You can see regurgitant flow from the aorta into the left ventricle which causes the murmur.

After reviewing the sound, use the waveform and anatomy tabs for more information about this sound.
