In brief: None

Mvp, despite many myths, doesn't cause symptoms.
When people get palpitations, avoiding caffeine, nicotine, lack of sleep, and stress often helps-low dose beta blocker like Propranolol is also used. But generally, mvp requires no treatment.

In brief: Treatment of MVP

There are no specific treatments for mvp.
Patients who have palpitations can be managed with a combination of both reassurance and beta blockers if necessary. The primary concern with mvp is whether or not the mitral valve leaks. These patients need to be monitored over time with echocardiography.
