Dr. Nassir Azimi answered:

Is there a difference between mitral valve prolapse and mitral regurgitation?

Yes

Mitral
One can have either without the other. Prolapsed mitral valve leaflets could leak. Leaking mitral valves could be prolapse. However, one can have prolapse and no regurgitation or regurgitation and no prolapse.

Dr. David Savage answered:

Hello doctor, I am having mild mitral valve prolapse with mild mitral regurgitation. Does i get endocarditis or it is very rare?

Low risk

Endocarditis
As long as those are your only heart problems, your risk of endocarditis is quite low. As a matter of fact, people in your situation no longer have to take antibiotics before dental work.

I have anterior mitral valve prolapse with mild mitral regurgitation and mild tricuspid regurgitation & im 15weeks pregnant,a C operation is better?

Not really

Regurgitation
MVP is a very common condition in women, over diagnosed in the 80's and 90's. The echo Doppler is a very sensitive tool to find "valvular leaks= regurgitation" The fact that the leaks are "mild" make them more likely without clinical significance and should not be a contraindication for vaginal delivery. Discuss with your PCP.

I've mitral valve prolapse without mitral regurgitation, and had panic disord and now I am anxious. I'm noticing extrasystole (fail of one bit)wat2do?

Anxious

Prolapse
Mitral valve prolapse is often associated with anxiety. First try the natural and self-directed ways to relieve anxiety-- (1) exercise; a brisk walk whenever you can; (2) progressive muscle relaxation exercises (you can find these on the internet); they work; (3) meditation, or even just sitting still in silence for 10-20 minutes at a time on a regular basis. Otherwise, you can see an MD for med

I am sorry to hear that your health is complicating your pregnancy. But, I am not sure how a stranger can help on the internet. It sounds like your OB will have you monitored closely with a Cardiologist as well. Follow their advise to the tee.

Dr. Bennett Werner answered:

Can regurgitation start at anytime with mitral valve prolapse?

Yes

Valve
While the technical answer is yes, it's more complicated: MVP encompasses a broad range of severity from trivial/normal variant to very severe. Commonly there is some degree of regurgitation, often mild. The rare, severe forms of MVP can suddenly rupture a chordae (a supporting structure of the valve) and suddenly develop severe regurgitation with symptoms. This can happen anytime.
