Often benign. In general, this condition is benign. It may lead to palpitations, shortness of breath, migraine, anxiety. Mitral valve replacement may be needed if there is severe mitral regurgitation or a leaky mitral valve - rare cases for mitral valve prolapse.

Usually no symptoms. Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is usually asymptomatic. Occasionally with more significant prolapse symptoms of shortness of breath occur. MVP should be followed with serial exams and cardiac echoes.
