MVP: These findings are suggestive of mitral valve prolapse. Most cases can be managed conservatively

Means you're fine: Trivial means just that, there is an insignificant leak from one of your mitral valve leaflets. Since you had the procedure done, I suppose you had some question about heart health. This is a relatively common finding in normal people.You may have an issue with your health, but this does not explain it.
