Pregnancy (Definition)

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

Can a ballerina foot MVP be caused by pregnancy valve changes and can be reversed after pregnancy?

Can a ballerina foot MVP be caused by pregnancy valve changes and can be reversed after pregnancy?

The heart does go: Through some changes associated with pregnancy that might enhance the presence of MVP and some of this may remodel after delivery. Regardless, in the absence of significant regurgitation it is of limited clinical relevance. ...Read more

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?

Talk to MFM /Cards: You need to have an appointment with either mfm, cardiology, or better yet, both. Most women with mvp can tolerate labor. You may need another echo at 28-30 weeks of pregnancy to make a final decision. ...Read more

Is there such a thing as pregnancy induced mitral valve prolapse? That Goes away after pregnancy?

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

Cardiology: 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. ...Read more

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

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

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.
Discuss with your pcp. ...Read more

What are the presenting symptoms of mvp?

What are the presenting symptoms of mvp?

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

Can someone with mvp use cocaine?

Can someone with mvp use cocaine?

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

Is it possible to be diagnosed with irbbb and mvp?

Is it possible to be diagnosed with irbbb and mvp?

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

Does anyone hear of people with mvp that affects them?

MVP: There are gradations of severity of myxomatosis degeneration of the mitral valve with prolapse. Severe leakage of the mitral can occur with resultant necessity for mitral valve surgical repair. ...Read more

Whether exercises such as running can deteriorate MVP MR?

Whether exercises such as running can deteriorate MVP MR?

MVP/MR: If you are asymptomatic then moderate exercise should not cause deterioration. However up to a third of patients can have increased MR with exercise and this indicates higher risk. You should consider stress testing with a cardiologist prior to an exercise regimen. ...Read more

I have mvp regurgitation. How often may it not pose a problem?

I have mvp regurgitation. How often may it not pose a problem?

It depends: It depends on how bad the regurgitation and prolapse are. Very mild prolapse and regurgitation are quite common, and most people with this go their entire lives without it causing a problem. If it is moderate or severe, it can require medication and/or surgery. ...Read more

Can you tell me for mvp patients, what food to choose or to avoid?

None specific to MVP: I know of no specific dietary restrictions in MVP. Certainly people with MVP and palpations and atrial arrhythmias, avoidance of caffeine containing foods/drinks may be helpful but would not make the recommendation to the group as a whole. ...Read more

Do all mvp with thickened leaflets have some degree of regurgitation?

Do all mvp with thickened leaflets have some degree of regurgitation?

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

Is there any possibility that there is sinus symptoms related to mvp symptoms?

Is there any possibility that there is sinus symptoms related to mvp symptoms?

Unlikely: 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

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

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

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
