When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

Uncertain: Diagnosis: uncertain. That's why you need to see a hematologist. If there were an easy answer, you'd already have it. Good luck. Be well. ...Read more
Can a ballerina foot MVP be caused by pregnancy valve changes and can be reversed after pregnancy?
I have mvp w/ moderate regurgitation. I'm newly pregnant and wondering if i'll be able to have normal vaginal delivery or if c-section is recommended?
The heart goes: Through some remodeling and the circulating volume increases during pregnancy. Hormonal changes result in increased compliance of cartilaginous tissues. These changes can result in transient changes in the valvular anatomy and cardiac physiology that could result in transient prolapse. It usually resolves over several months post delivery and is rarely clinically significant. ...Read more
It is safe to have normal deliveries on a pregnant woman who has mitral valve prolapse or a C-section is suggested?
I need help pls. I'm 15weeks pregnant, I have a anterior mitral valve prolapse (a2) with mild mitral regurgitation and mild tricuspid regurgitation : (?
I have anterior mitral valve prolapse with mild mitral regurgitation and mild tricuspid regurgitation & im 15weeks pregnant, a c operation is better?
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. ...Read more
Asymptomatic: Some people believe that mitral valve prolapse can cause chest pain, but I do not. Unless it causes severe mitral regurgitation (leakage if the valve), which is rare, mvp generally causes no symptoms at all. It is almost always diagnosed as an incidental finding (by accident when doing an echocardiogram for another reason). ...Read more
First of all. ..: Nobody should use cocaine. If someone has mvp -- I am assuming you mean mitral valve prolapse -- there are significant risk factors involved as Cocaine is a stimulant and it can cause stroke, heart attacks and seizures. The mvp person already has an abnormal heart valve. Without Cocaine someone with mvp is capable of living a pretty normal life. Why push your luck. ...Read more
Yes: Both are relatively benign conditions. Mvp occurs in about a third of the population and are mostly found via echocardiogram. It can be associated with anxiety and palpitations, but otherwise is not life threatening. Irbbb is also not life threatening, but has to be monitored periodically - like once every 2-3 years. If no echocardiogram in 2 years, it is also a good idea to get one. ...Read more
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. A "billowing" valve may be a better term if there is no true prolapse. ...Read more
Nasal airway sinuses are unrelated.
There is a coronary sinus in the heart, and the sinus node in the electrical system and sometimes these terms can be confusing. ...Read more
Generally no: There's generally no relation, but people with marfan's syndrome who are often tall have a higher incidence of mvp. Otherwise, no relation. ...Read more
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
Iam having mild mvp with mild regurgitation. What's the chances of increasing regurgitation in me.
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. Regurgitation can occur overtime and should be watched for with echo. ...Read more
I have mild MVP with mild regurgitation. Does these mild MVP can progress to Severe within 4, 5 years?
Mvp: With common MVP and mild MR progression of mitral insufficiency is usually very slow unless endocarditis or something else intervenes. ...Read more
Sir, I am a licensed fighter. I suffer from mild MVP. Do I stop fighting? Can you help me? Thanks for your answers..
MVP: You need to have this discussion with the doctor (s) who know you. Mild mitral prolapse usually isn't a problem but we don't know enough about you specifically to responsibly advise you. ...Read more
In may ECHO, "MVP primary MR" has been written. Does it have insufficiency? Is it severe? Whether it's MR 1+ or MR 2+?
MR = regurgitation: Per your comments in quotation marks, yes, you have mitral regurgitation or insufficiency. As to its severiry, mild, moderate or severe, is not mentioned in your verbiage. Therefore, I feel your echo report is "incomplete" and ought to be re-read. Further if MVP with regurgitation, you ought to be advised on SBE prophylaxis. ...Read more
