MVP: Mvp is a condition where the collagen fibers of the mitral valve aren't laid down properly. It leads to breakdown of the valve. People with mvp are at higher risk for needing valve surgery at some point in their lives. It is usually managed with serial cardiac echo's every 6-12 months. People with mvp should follow with a cardiologist on a regular basis.
