Depends: Mitral valve prolapse (mvp) can occur with or without mitral regurgitation (mr). The mvp/mr may be s trace and trivial as to warrent follow up with an echocardiogram every 18-24 months or so. Conversely, it can also be severe requiring more intensive surveillance and attention as to timing of intervention. In the more advanced or severe stages it's best to be followed regularly by a cardiologist.
