What Is The Best Alternative Way To Treat Mitral Valve Prolapse
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

This surgery can be done minimally invasively through a small incision in the right chest or with robotic assistance. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Mitral valve prolaps: I will assume you did not mean effective but harmful :-) when the valve leaflets "prolapse" they bend back and no longer seal, resulting in significant leakage of the valve. This increases the amount of work the heart has to perform, resulting in decrease in exercise capacity and more shortness of breath. Of course, the leakage can be a little with few symptoms or severe... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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
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
