A 29-year-old male asked:

Is mild mitral regurg a fairly common finding on today's echos? i'm only 29, no prolapse valve just doesn't close tight enough apparently...

Yes; overly sensitiv: Today's echocardiography machines are very sensitive. Often they can spot findings that make no physiologic sense, or that aren't causing any problems (symptoms) at the moment (nor cause any problems in the future). "Mild" mitral regurgitation often falls into this category. But if you are having symptoms, make sure you bring this up with your doctor or HealthTap Prime physician, sooner not later.
