True MVP...: Occurs in less than 3% of the population and most people have no symptoms, don't need treatment and are able to lead normal, active lives. A trivial degree of regurgitation occurs in even normal valves under certain circumstances. Not all valves with prolapse have regurgitation and not all valves that regurgitate have prolapse.

Should be benign: I'm afraid that my experience with most cases of diagnosed mvp involve an incorrect diagnosis. It is frequently the case. Also important is what symptoms lead someone to do an echo and 'diagnose' mvp. So a second opinion might be in order. That said, it is generally a benign condition. Thee should not be any dieatary or exercise restrictions according to any published guidlelines. ...Read more

Can I still continue powerlifting after being diagnosed with mvp with regurgitation mild?

Can I still continue powerlifting after being diagnosed with mvp with regurgitation mild?

Would probably avoid: Although there are no large clinical trials that definitively look at this, theoretically, it makes better sense that you avoid powerlifting because it can increases left sided heart pressures pretty dramatically. Risk for worsening the mvp depends on the cause and your 1-2 year follow up echo results. Low resistance exercises like jogging is better. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Yes and its not bad: The doctor is correct this is common, very common to find MVP and trace regard, What it means is what you heart contracts the mitral valve leafs kind of bend backwards and open a little allowing a small amount of blood to flow backwards. Some patients feel palpitations, or have irregular heart bats that when worked up we find the MVP. You can drink coffee just in moderation ...Read more

ECHO: Normal Left ventricular size + wall thickness and wall motion, Normal biventricular systolic function, Mild MVP w/ trace regurgitation, EF 67%, RV systolic pressure 16mmHg, mild heart murmur. No symptoms. Help! Is this normal?

MVP: Your echocardiogram is not perfectly normal as it shows mild mitral valve prolapse. All other parameters are normal. MVP is very common and very often causes no problems. Nevertheless I recommend periodic follow-up by a cardiologist as the mvp can worsen, cause atrial arrhythmias and atypical chest discomfort. Very often a click can be heard on stethoscope examination of the heart. ...Read more
