What happens over a lifetime to a person with sinus node dysfunction and mitral valve prolapse?

Extremely variable. The two entities are usually unrelated. First, sinus node dysfunction. As people age, this usually becomes worse, and (especially if there is need for certain cardiac or BP meds), frequently causes dizziness, fatigue or fainting. Mitral valve prolapse can progress with more "stretching" of the valve over time, and hence becoming leaky, but it is a minority of people who develop significant leak.
Sinus node. in some cases where sinus node dysfunction leads to symptomatic bradycardia, pacemaker becomes necessary.

Mitral valve prolapse question. What is the long term changes that will happen?

Variable. The history of mitral valve prolapse is variable from person to person. Some people have prolapse with no or minimal regurgitation of the valve. They may need suveillence with echocardiogram but never need any other intervention. Some may progress to severe valve leakage and need a replacement or repair. Some may develop some rhythym abnormalities that also require treatment. Read more...
Maybe nothing. Mvp could become problematic if severe or symptomatic mitral regurgitation develops. Fortunately this is not very common. Read more...

What happens if you have left atrial enlargement and mitral valve prolapse?

Associated. La enlargement is common with a leaking mitral valve (mr). Recent studies have shown severe enlargement of la can be serious. A normal size is around 25ml/m2. This is volume of la divided by the body surface area (this takes into different sizes of people). When over 60 the risk dying is increased. If the valve is repaired this returns to normal. This is regardless of symptoms. Read more...
