Mitral prolapse: It is not likely to cause edema unless the mitral insufficiency is quite severe. Usual mitral prolapse is mostly noise and little associated problem.
Dr. Creighton Wright

Not exavtly: Idiopathic suggests we do not know the cause. With mitral disease and regurgitation, edema is common.

Not usually: If edema with mvp suggests regurgitation and back pressure with congestion and degree of congestive failure.
