Is Mitral Valve Prolapse Considered Heart Disease
Heart disease is a condition in which a person has problems within his or her vascular system and heart, which includes both congenital birth defects and problems acquired later. Examples of heart disease include clogging (atherosclerosis) of the coronary (heart) arteries, heart attacks (obstructions of the arteries), damaged heart valves, heart muscle failure, and viral infections of the heart. Some major causes of heart disease include genetics, smoking, hypertension, high ...Read more
My doctor said that I have mild mitral valve prolapse. Is it a risk factor for future heart disease?
Not really: If it is associated with a loud murmur or a lot of back flow of blood, that is a different story. Just have it followed up by serial echocardiograms every few years by a good cardiologist. ...Read more
Would a Mitral Valve repair from severe regurgitation and Mitral Valve prolapse be a form of Valvular Heart Disease?
Or once repaired is it classed as a Normal valve? I am unsure like my Cardiologist as he remarked outside his experience to answer!
Heart valve.: In this context, before your operation you would be categorized as having valvular heart disease. That being said, once the valve is replaced, either with a metallic or poor seen valve, you would not be considered as having a normal valve. You would have a replaced valve. You will never again have a normal valve. Even with the new surgeries (TAVR) the valve is still abnormal. ...Read more
After Mitral Valve repair from mitral prolapse although classed as heart disease when successfuly carried out the long term outlook is very good?
Very good: You should continue to be followed by your cardiologist every 6-12 months and also if you note any important change in heart-type symptoms. HRS, MD, FACC www.thepmc.org ...Read more
MVP: Not really... A lot of "symptoms" have been attributed to mvp. However, there are quite a few studies showing no difference in symptoms in people with or without mvp. Too often, mvp has been used as a "convenience" diagnosis to explain a variety of poorly defined symptoms. Conclusion, it can, but most likely it is not... ...Read more
MVP: Mitral valve prolapse is an abnormality of this heart valve which can be associated with a heart murmur, chest pain or heart arrhythmia. The valve is abnormal and 'flops' into the atrium. It may or may not be associated with a murmur which is the valve leaking. The Worst case is that it is a syndrome associated with arrhythmias and even strokes. It should be followed by a cardiologist. ...Read more
Simple: Murmur= an extra heart sound beyond the expected lub dup. Mitral valve prolapse= the mitral valve sinks in when it closes and may leak. You hear a murmur, which may be a problem or not. You usually won't hear a valve prolapse but find out about it on a cardiac ultrasound or catheterization. ...Read more
Can be: Mitral valve prolapse is most often associated with some degree of mitral regurgitation ("leaking") which causes a murmur. The severity ranges from mild and insignificant to severe. Depending on the severity and your age, it may never, ever cause you any symptoms or problems. In the rare cases in which it is very severe, the valve can be repaired and life goes on normally again. ...Read more
I have mitral valve prolapse, they looked at my heart on echo, am i really going to be okay? Am i at risk for a heat attack?
Chest pain MVP: Inmitral valve prolapse abnormalities in the valve makes it to fall back in to the left atrium as the ventricle contracts. This flopping or prolapsing is sometime perceived as chest pain/heart pain. The pain can be recurring and varies in intensity depending on the size of the prolapse. ...Read more
Is severe, frequent, stabbing heart pains a typical symptom of mvp (mitral valve prolapse)? What else should I look out for?
I have mild mitral valve prolapse with mild regurgitation, can I eat eggs daily or it cause any problem to my heart?
Daily eggs: Data doesn't prove one way or the other. The reasonable course is to follow a mediterranean diet and keep egg intake to a couple of times a week. ...Read more
If I am on a high dose (100mg/day) of vyvanse and have mitral valve prolapse, am i at a great risk of major heart issues/death?
The Mitral Valve:
prolapse may result in cardiac arrhythmia and unfortunately so can the vyvanase..
Since these are ATRIAL in origin sudden death is very unlikely.
I would suggest you discuss this medication with the prescribing health professional since there may be alternative therapeutic possibilities!
BTW make sure you have Antibiotics when having DENTAL work!
Hope this is helpful!

I have mild mitral valve prolapse and I get heart palpations fairly frequently throughout the day. When should I worry about the palpitations?
If they cause you: to pass out or if they develop into sustained tachycardia. ...Read more
I have mild mitral valve prolapse and I get heart palpitations fairly frequently throughout the day. When should I worry about the palpitations?
If they change: Greatly in frequency or severity. Most MVP patients have some palpitations ...Read more
I'm 23. About 115 pounds and not very active. I have mitral valve prolapse. If my heart rate is currently at 57 with chest pain should I be worried?
Prolapse: Mvp is not necessarily symptomatic. Your chest ache may well have a musculoskeletal or no cardiac cause. Probably you are fine. Being inactive is not a healthy state, we all need regular exercise. ...Read more
Yes: Holter will be able to analyze your heart rhythmn whether regular or not. Premature beats are associated with mitral prolapse. ...Read more
Can an enlarged heart due to htn and/or mitral valve prolapse heal itself & return to normal size? If so, how? I have both mvp & htn.
Not likely.: Once the heart is enlarged from a long-standing problem, it will not go back to normal architecture though it may well continue to function normally if the enlargement is not significant. Sometimes, when the enlargement happens rapidly due to an acute issue, the size can go back to normal. ...Read more
I've noticed yesterday that I've mitral valve prolapse. Can it cause heart palpitation and anxiety? Are b complex injection derogatoty for it?
I've noticed yesterday that I've mitral valve prolapse. Can it cause heart palpitation and anxiety? Are b complex injections derogatoty for it?
MVP: For the majority of people, mitral valve prolapse is a variation of normal. There is a spectrum and some people have a more severe form. When present, this leads to mitral regurgitation (leakage), a loud murmur, and over many years can lead to heart failure-then the valve must be repaired. B vitamins with neither help nor harm you. Palps and anxiety are common and not related. ...Read more
I constantly get depressed and anxious. Was diagnosed with mitral valve prolapse, always getting sick. Could this mean my heart may be regurgitating?
Doubtful: They probably aren't related. Talk to your doctor about echocardiography. That will answer the question of regurgitation. ...Read more
I have mitral valve prolapse and recently I got asthma. Started inhalation with cortizon for 2months. Is it connected with my heart condition? Sth worse?
No: I am not aware of any connection. ...Read more
I often feel like my heart is gurgling. Is this normal?
I have a very small mitral valve prolapse due to dysplasia of the valve at birth. 21y old male
Gurgling?: Hearts don't "gurgle". Perhaps we have a language issue as English, I presume, isn't your first language? Stomachs and bowels gurgle. Hearts may skip or pound and popular belief is that mitral valve prolapse can cause it, but, actually, it's unlikely to be associated except for rare, very severe MVP. ...Read more
Is it ok to take Celexa (citalopram) if I have mitral valve prolapse & occasionally experience arrythmias — leaflet states to be cautious with heart conditions?
Celexa (citalopram) can cause a prolonged QT interval. If a person has a long QT interval already when he or she starts taking Celexa (citalopram), it could cause a dangerous heart rhythm problem. However, Mitral Valve Prolapse does not cause QT interval prolongation, so generally, MVP is not a reason to avoid Celexa (citalopram). Hope this helps.

For the last 2 weeks I have felt like my heart is sitting in my throat. I have a 25 year histroy of mitral valve prolapse we well.?
I've had a mild mitral valve prolapse with no regurgitation, what will be the effect on my heart if im having tooth decay?
Why risk it: Leaving tooth decay untreated is a bad idea, get it taken care of. Period. But to answer your question, theoretically bacterial from your mouth can travel through the bloodstream and lodge itself on your heart valves. This is caused endocarditis. Having a few small cavities for a short time is probably no big deal, but having severe decay or periodontitis increases your risk for heart disease. ...Read more
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
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
