Mitral Valve Prolapse Vs Mitral Regurgitation
Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is a medical condition in which one of the heart valves (the mitral valve) cannot stay closed when one of the heart chambers (the left ventricle) is pumping blood into the body. Blood normally flows from the lungs to a holding chamber (the left atrium) into the pumping chamber (the left ventricle). The mitral valve is the gate between the left atrium and ventricle. In MVP, the valve is abnormally floppy and thus parachutes up and is sometimes unable to prevent the backflow of blood from the pumping chamber (left ventricle) back into the ...Read more

Not really: 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.

Sometimes Related: Mitral valve prolapse is a common, typically mild condition in which one or both of the valve leaflets bulge backwards during valve closure. Mitral insufficiency is abnormal, backward leakage through the closed valve. If mild, negative effects are unusual. If severe, it can cause congestive failure, rhythm disturbances and other unwanted effects. Mvp, is one of many causes of insufficiency. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
