Trivial Mitral Regurgitation
A disorder of the heart in which the mitral valve, separating left atrium and left ventricle does not close properly. When the heart pumps out blood from the left atrium to the left ventricle through the incompetent valve, it leads to the abnormal leaking of blood from the left ventricle back ...Read more
Mitral (MI-tral) valve prolapse (MVP) is a condition in which one of the heart's valves, the mitral valve, doesn't work properly. The flaps of the valve are "floppy" and don't close tightly.
Much of the time, MVP doesn't cause any problems. Rarely, blood can leak the wrong way through the floppy valve, which may cause shortness of breath, palpitations (strong or rapid heartbeats), or chest pain. ...Read more
I am 29 year old and last month I was diagnosed with mild MVP and trivial mitral regurgitation. Can i continue gym and lift weights?
Mvp: What you describe is usually no big deal, BUT there really isn't enough information in your note for us to advise you. ...Read more
What symptoms would I have if my problem I have of trivial pulmonary and trivial mitral regurgitation worsened . ?
Trivial is common: The findings of trivial mitral and pulmonary regurgitation is essentially a normal finding on echo, what many call physiologic regurgitation. It would be very unlikely that this would progress to significant valve disease anytime soon, however the symptoms of significant mitral regurgitation may be shortness or breath, fatigue, palpitations, chest pressure. ...Read more
How would trivial pulmonary and trivial mitral regurgitation be fixed ? not that i want it i just want to know if and how it could be fixed ?
No need: Trivial mitral and pulmonary regurgitation are common due to more sophisticated testing now available and neither are likely to be a problem in most peoples lifetimes. Dictum-first do no harm. That includes worry. ...Read more
Omg still no help to me can i body build yes or no would this make my trivial pulmonary and trivial mitral regurgitation any worse yes or no ?
On the internet?: Jack. I would advise you not to trust any physician who would answer your question without examining you and fully reviewing your medical records. I am sorry to be blunt. But we are talking about your heart and your life. No ethical physician will give you 'permission' without more valid in person evaluation. ...Read more
Iv bin told that trivial pulmonary and trivial mitral regurgitation is nothing to worry about any time soon dose the mean it is going to get worse ?
NO: Virtually all human beings have trivial PR and MR. You have nothing to worry about. At least not from that! ...Read more
Im 29 years old, I have mild MVP with trivial mitral regurgitation. Can I do gym exercise like weight lifting..?
Probably: It sounds like you sure could, particularly if your doctor did not specifically tell you to restrict your activities. Probably the safest thing would be to check with your doctors office as they are most familiar with your condition. ...Read more
Last month I was diagnosed with mild MVP and trivial mitral regurgitation. Everything else normal. Can I continue my weight lifting exercises in gym?
Choices & will drive: hydraulic valve loads high while doing each & every lift. During the lift, varying with technique/strategy, both pulmonary & system BP's dramatically ↑, in turn increasing blood pressure differential on all the valve leaflets. The ↑ed pressure drives any prolapse & leaks. Avoid any breath holding (narrowing of vocal cords); bad technique for health. Also get & closely inspect all the echo videos. ...Read more
I am 27 and have just been diagnosed with trivial mitral regurgitation but no mention of mvp on my echocardiogram results. Is this likely progress?
Don't worry: Trivial mitral regurgitation is just that - trivial. Do not worry too much about this very common finding. Just file the knowledge away, and if you ever have another echo (which you just might never need) you and your doctor can see if there has been any change. In all likelihood there won't be. ...Read more
Do you think I can go to gym if I have a mild mitral valve prolapse with trivial mitral regurgitation?
Yes go to gym:
Contact your Internist and Cardiologist and ask them if you are medically clear to engage in gym activities.
Mild and trivial heart murmurs are common. Unless your doctors specifically told you not to exercise there is no barrier to exercise in my opinion. In fact there are multiple studies suggesting exercise is beneficial. Start by going to the American Heart Association for recommendations! ...Read more
I was asking because i have trivial pulmonary and trivial mitral regurgitation can i still do body building and lift heavy weights ?
I have mild mitral valve prolapse with trivial mitral regurgitation. Everything else normal Can I do kapalbhati pranayama daily for 30 minutes?
Mitral prolapse: Mild mitral prolapse with trivial valvular regurgitation (leaking) is unlikely to cause any future health problems. No specific treatment would be required, and no limitations on exercise or other activities would be prescribed based on this finding. Kapalbhati pranayama and other yoga practices are fine. This cardiac finding would not stop you from training to run a marathon if you wanted. ...Read more
I have mild mitral valve prolapse with trivial mitral regurgitation. Can I do kapalbhati pranayama for 30 minutes daily in morning on empty stomach?
It should not be: a problem for your cardiac status but confirming this with your health care professional would be advisable since there may be things he/she knows about your health that you have not revealed here. ...Read more
Is trivial to mild mitral regurgitation usually audible to a cardio with a stethoscope? Is this something that normally progresses?
Mitral regurgitation: Audible sound depends on amount of turbulence caused by a lesion. Generally trivial MR causes little or no murmur, mild MR might cause some. The minimal MR lesions usually don't progress unless endocarditis occurs but progression is not impossible. ...Read more
Very small leak: The mitral valve prevents blood from flowing backwards out of the main pumping chamber of the heart (left ventricle). When a valve leaks we call this regugitation or insufficiency. One method of describing a leak is to classify it as trivial, mild, moderate, or severe. A trivial leak should not affect you heart in any way. A lot of people of this and never need anything done for it. ...Read more
Had ECHO done to rule out any adverse reason for RBBB. Came back as 'Normal Study'. There was trivial mitral valve regurgitation. Common? at risk?
Common, low risk:
Isolated right bundle branch block is a very common conduction system issue that traditionally has not been associated with adverse outcome, in the absence of structural heart disease.
Your physician is trying to verify that you have a structurally normal heart by getting an echo. Trivial mitral (and tricuspid) regurgitation are within normal limits and of no concern. ...Read more
My echo results- trivial mitral valve regurgitation, mild (1+-2+) pulmonic valve regurgitation, trivial (-1+) tricuspid valve regurgitation- normal?
Some important data are missing before i can say normal.What is pa pressure.
What about lv function etc. If they r normal then only i can comment on it sorry! ...Read more
I have mild MVP with trivial mitral valve regurgitation. Do I need to tell my dentist about it. I will be having a surgical tooth extraction shortly?
Contact MD: Speak to your cardiologist or primary care MD prior to seeing the dentist. It is up to the MD if you need to be premedicated for any or all dental procedures. ...Read more
MR: The mitral valve has 2 leaflets which separates the left ventricle from the left atrium. Blood passes across the mv from the la to the lv when the heart is filling. When the ventricle contracts, the mv is closed and no blood goes backward into the la unless regurgitation is present. Then the blood leaks backward, overfilling the la and raising the pressure. ...Read more
Many things: Regurgitation means the valve allows blood to leak backwards thru the valve. Causes can be several things. This includes degenerative changes in valve tissues, rupture of supporting chords, rheumatic fever, infections, heart attacks and many more. Your doctor with the help of a good history and physical exam and some tests like an echo can help figure out which the cause. ...Read more
VERY MILD valve leak: Trace means 'very mild' and mitral valve regurgitation means 'leak'. It happens when your mitral valve doesn't close tightly, which allows blood to flow backward in your heart. When the 'leak' is moderate-severe you may develop symptoms of tiredness & fatigue. The worst thing: 'heart failure' requiring heart surgery and valve replacement (but you are no where near that stage) so, no worries here. ...Read more
