Mitral Valve Prolapse (Definition)

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

Can mitral valve prolapse cause a person to have anxiety attacks?

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 more

When you have a mitral valve prolapse what causes mitral valve regurgitation? How can you prevent from it happening

When you have a mitral valve prolapse what causes mitral valve regurgitation? How can you prevent from it happening

You can't prevent: Mitral valve prolapse describes the way the leaflets of the mitral valve close. With mvp the stresses in the mv are altered making it susceptible to injury. This is what leads to regurge. There's nothing you can do to change the stresses in the mv. However, most people do not progress to significant regurge. Also, the majority of mitral regurge due to prolapse can be repaired minimally invasively. ...Read more

Can my mild mitral valve prolapse be cause of my SOB? 1 flight of stairs gets me very SOB. Never smoked. Used to run daily, had to stop cuz of breathing

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 more

Does mitral valve prolapse cause low energy?

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

Hello sir, can mitral valve prolapse causes death in 20 year old?

Hello sir, can mitral valve prolapse causes death in 20 year old?

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 more

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

Valve (Definition)

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
