Mitral prolapse: Mild mitral prolapse with trivial valvular regurgitation (leaking) is unlikely to cause any future health problems. No specific treatment would be required, and no limitations on exercise or other activities would be prescribed based on this finding. Kapalbhati pranayama and other yoga practices are fine. This cardiac finding would not stop you from training to run a marathon if you wanted.
