Can increased heart rate sometimes during the day cause mitral valve leakage? Had mitral valve heart surgery three months ago.

Mitral regurgitation. Mitral valve leakage, referred to as mitral regurgitation, is a steady state and doesn't come and go but can fluctuate in intensity under certain circumstances. It can cause disturbances in the heart rhythm and cause the heart to race.

Compensation. Asymptomatic mitral valve regurgitation may compensate by having a faster heart rate. The body can compensate two ways. Either a faster heart rate or more blood per beat. If you are active then your body may compensate for the regurgitation by having a resting heart rate above normal. Follow with a cardiologist. Also ask to see a surgeon so that if you need surgery in the future. Read more...

I had mitral valve repair done 3 weeks ago. Cardiologist told me still sees a little leakage, if you elevate heart rate, will that make leak worse?

Possible. Rate increase may cause same volume leak with more beats. It the valve does not seat better, then more leak will happen. Some may have less leak as the heart is more contractile and the valve comes together better. Read more...

21 years old. Had mitral valve repair heart surgery. I love drinking coffee, use to drink more than one cup a day. Can I still have caffeine?

Yes. One cup probably will not hurt if you do not have symptoms. But the real question to ask is, "why would you want to jeopardize your health?" consider that you might need to talk about your feelings of having had the procedure with you physician. Sounds like you have some issues you need to discuss. Personally i would consider myself "allergic to caffeine" as an excuse not to be tempted. Read more...
