What Does It Mean To Have Mitral Valve Prolapse Syndrome
Often nothing!: Mitral valve prolapse, once said to be a cause of many symptoms, is often a harmless finding, esp in young individuals. When it is accompanied by significant leakage back across the vale (mitral regurgitation), it can be a serious finding. Thus, if it is just a click heard listening to the heart, don't worry. Your doctor may want to order an echocardiogram if not sure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
When the mitral valve that separates the heart's left atrium and left ventricle does not close appropriately. When the heart contracts to push blood from the left ventricle to the rest of the body, portions of the mitral valve move backwards into the left atrium. This can cause regurgitation of blood from the left ventricle into the left atrium. Most of the time a mitral valve prolapse is asymptomatic and does ...Read more

Very likely: There is a good correlation between coronary artery disease and carotid artery disease - almost 60% . So a normal coronary artery is likely to indicate a low probability of carotid artery disease. If you absolutely need to know you can get a simple carotid artery ultrasound .( this is a non invasive simple test) ...Read more
Someone tells you: Very rarely do people know they have this on their own. It can occasionally be associated with racing or skipped heart beats, but that's nonspecific. A doctor may order an ultrasound of your heart to show this clearly. Listening with a stethoscope can provide clues, but few doctors can tell prolapse clearly from other diagnoses based on that alone. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi.. I would like to ask what food should avoid if I have mitral valve prolapse? Thank you so much
A valve is a structure that regulates the direction of flow. The heart is a special kind of pump. It moves blood by squeezing and relaxing. There are 4 chambers and each chamber has a valve. This keeps blood from moving backwards when the heart squeezes. When a chamber squeezes it lets the blood move forward but when the chamber is relaxed it prevents the blood from ...Read more
