Mild MVP : Mitral valve prolapse is an often overdiagnosed condition. Therefore the American society of echo came up with strict criteria. So "mild" and anterior leaflet "tip" makes me question the diagnoses. U may want to get a second Opinion. Having said that, prolapse is only a concern if the valve is also leaky. You make no mention of that - so no mitral regurgitation. Then ought not to be an issue.
