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
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
Unlikely: This is a situation where two conditions that are very common (mitral valve prolapse and anxiety) may coexist in the same individual but is does not mean one caused the other. Some people with mvp may experience palpitations which could be unsettling and someone with anxiety may feel overwhelmed by having what they percieve as "something wrong with their heart". ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have anterior valve redundancy with no prolapse, with trivial regurgitation, can this cause cardiac arrest?
Pulmonary HTN: You're correct. Mitral stenosis produces a diastolic rumble or murmur. However, as mitral stenosis worsens patients develop pulmonary hypertension. This in turn will increase the pressure in the right ventricle which could induce a normal tricuspid valve to leak. This murmur would be systolic. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
An echocardiogram revealed mild mitral valve thickening & prolapse. Can this be causing a fast heart rate/tiredness?
Possibly: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/3287421 there has been much written about the association between panic disorder and mitral valve prolapse, as above. While the association is small, in my practice I have seen patients who have mvp, panic disorder and both. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Will drinking alcohol cause leakage of your mitral heart valve, if you have a weakened mitral valve due to endocarditis.?
Cardiomyopathy: Alcohol is not likely to directly effect a endocarditis damaged valve. However, heavy alcohol usage can cause alcoholic cardiomyopathy. This toxic effect injures the heart muscle, diminishes the muscle function, and dilates the heart. Dilation of the heart causes valves to leak. "echocardiogram may show enlarged heart chambers, leaking valves, and reduced pumping efficiency" http://goo.Gl/po8vcu. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What can cause my RA and RV enlarged + tricuspid regur, without present of pulmonary hypertention or mitral valve disease? Is it possible congenital?
Mgt/workup: It is possible that the right sided heart problem is related to a change in the anatomy on that side. The leaky valve makes the heart work more with each beat. Since you have experienced leg swelling, the regurgitation may have been significant enough to allow back up of the blood, resulting in leg edema. The valve may be repaired to alleviate this cause. It is important to follow up. ...Read more
Sure: The mitral valve is a relatively tough structure (it has to be to stand up to 80+ years of brutally forceful contractions) but not tougher than some of the tools used for ablation. A few rare things can damage the valve, particularly when performing atrial fibrillation ablations. That said, these things are rare. Mitral regurgitation is almost always from another cause. Cheers! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What causes heart valve leakage on a repaired mitral valve? I had a mitral valve repair, what will cause the repaires valve to start to have some leak
Some leakage : Some leakage is the norm. This is nothing to worry about. Your cardiologist will keep an eye on this . You will have periodic echocardiograms (maybe every year or more) to follow this. What you do not need to do is fixate on this and worry yourself to death! you are better - enjoy this! hope this helps! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Will drinking alcohol socially cause leakage of heart mitral valve if you have a weakened mitral valve due to endocrdidtis .
Technically no BUT: If you suffer from mitral valve prolapse, most physicians would encourage you to embrace a healthy lifestyle - exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet, avoid tobacco & excessive caffeine, limit alcohol intake, and make sure you maintain good dental health. 'socially' depends on precisely what you mean by social. I would encourage you to discuss this issue with your physician. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Will cardio exercise cause leakage of your mitral heart valve if your mitral valve is weakened due to endocarditis?
No: Cardio improves overall heart-lung-muscle function. A leaking valve will not be damaged, per se. However, depending on the amount of valve damage and leak from the endocarditis, total cardio performance may be limited. Discuss with you doctor about performing an exercise stress test before engaging in strenuous cardio exercise. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not typically: It is unusual for valve damage to occur in the setting of catheter ablation. Damage could occur due to puncture of a valve leaflet or related to extensive ablation around the valve ring. A mapping catheter with a spiral configuration could get caught in the chordae, the strings which attach the valve leaflets to the muscle, and tear one or more of them. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Does this increase my risk for sudden cardiac death? Is this mitral valve prolapse?, will it get worse with time? Anterior mitral valve leaflet moderately thickened but no stenosis or prolapse.
Dysautonomia - MVP : Dysautonomia is associated with mitral valve prolapse syndrome - neither are usually life threatening but both cause patients anxiety about their symptoms. Read dr. Richard hoffman's book on mvp on amazon.Com. Increase fluid intake, try magnesium supplements. Risk of sudden death is less than chance of winning the powerball lottery. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
