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.

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...

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.

Discuss symptom Rx. I assume you have had a though work-up. If all else is benign, there is little to fear. The symptoms maybe from anxiety rather than the prolapse. Sometimes careful use of a beta-blocker can relieve symptoms related to anxiety, including the palpitations. See your doctor to discuss. Read more...
Anxious. Mitral valve prolapse is often associated with anxiety. First try the natural and self-directed ways to relieve anxiety-- (1) exercise; a brisk walk whenever you can; (2) progressive muscle relaxation exercises (you can find these on the internet); they work; (3) meditation, or even just sitting still in silence for 10-20 minutes at a time on a regular basis. Otherwise, you can see an md for med. Read more...
Some basics. MVP can be detected in as many as 10-15% of women by the time they are teens. If there is no leaky valve there is no extra strain on the heart or system.

Mitral regurgitation 396.3 mitral valve prolapse, history of v 12.50 what are some of the treatments for this condition and any information you can share. Thank you. Joy age 60, female

Hello . Hello joy. Mitral valve prolapse is a condition where the mitral valve is a bit more floppy than usual and so does not form a perfect seal to prevent backward leaking of blood (mitral regugitation) from the ventricle into the atrium. If only mild, you do not need any treatment at all. The condition should be followed over time with annual visits to your doctor and periodic echocardiograms (heart ultrasound). If the condition worsens to the point of moderate or severe regurgitation, you may develop symptoms such as shortness of breath with exertion or fatigue. In that case, you may end up requiring a procedure to repair the valve. Repair is usually done surgically, but there are new techniques being developed to allow for minimally invasive repair via catheters. Read more...
