Can Mitral Valve Prolapse Be A Cause Of Svt
Not likely: Mvp typically doesn't cause too many problems in an otherwise healthy person. If there is an underlying heart problem or other disease process at work, then all bets are off. While it may be associated with it, the mvp isn't likely to be the direct cause. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Mitral valve prolapse is when the mitral valve that separates the heart's left atrium and left ventricle does not close appropriately. When the heart contracts to push blood from the left ventricle to the rest of the body, portions of the mitral valve move backwards into the left atrium. This can cause regurgitation of blood from the left ventricle into the left atrium. Most of the time a mitral valve prolapse is asymptomatic and does ...Read more

Yes: Mitral valve prolapse can indeed cause dyspnea, or shortness of breath. Echocardiography can show your degree of prolapse and if there is concurrent mitral regurgitation, or abnormal reflux of blood from the left ventricle backwards into the left atrium. Please discuss with a Cardiologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Usually not ...: Mitral valve prolapse occurs when the leaflets of the mitral valve, between the heart's left atrium and ventricle, bulge upward or back into the left atrium as the heart contracts. When more severe, it causes leakage of blood back into the atrium--mitral regurgitation--which can cause fatigue. But the majority of cases of mitral valve prolapse are not this severe and cause few, if any, symptoms. ...Read more
Echo follow up: The mitral prolapse must be followed with echo cardiograms to identify when regurgitation ( leakage) of the valve and heart enlargement starts to occur. The valve at that stage can be repaired. Prior to that the risk of sudden death is very low. Discus with your doctor the potential need for antibiotics when you have dental cleanings. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

A valve is a structure that regulates the direction of flow. The heart is a special kind of pump. It moves blood by squeezing and relaxing. There are 4 chambers and each chamber has a valve. This keeps blood from moving backwards when the heart squeezes. When a chamber squeezes it lets the blood move forward but when the chamber is relaxed it prevents the blood from ...Read more
