are there any exercise restrictions that should apply if you have trivial mitral regurgitation?

NO: Trivial mitral regurgitation has trivial effects on one's health, though it may be wise to take an antibiotic prior to dental procedures to minimize the small chance of endocarditis. Absolutely no exercise restrictions are necessary.

Mitral regurgitation: Means the amount of hemodynamic problem is trivial or unimportant. As such there are no special exercise restrictions for such a person unless other problems exist. The trivial valve dysfunction is generally meaningless.
