When you have a mitral valve prolapse what causes mitral valve regurgitation? How can you prevent from it happening

You can't prevent. Mitral valve prolapse describes the way the leaflets of the mitral valve close. With mvp the stresses in the mv are altered making it susceptible to injury. This is what leads to regurge. There's nothing you can do to change the stresses in the mv. However, most people do not progress to significant regurge. Also, the majority of mitral regurge due to prolapse can be repaired minimally invasively.
Mitral regurgitation. Prolapse prevent two leaflets from coming together during heart beat thereby causing leak. There is a trend for early surgical treatment provided the surgeon can repair and not replace the valve. The leaflet tissue usually lack the strength and you cannot prevent mitral regurgitation.

What is mild mitral valve prolapse and associated moderate mitral insufficiency?

Floppy Valve Tissue. In mitral valve prolapse, the mitral valve tissue is structurally abnormal. The valve is too large for the mitral valve orifice and buckles during closure. This results in leaking of blood from the left ventricle back into the left atrium. Read more...
2 different things. Mitral valve prolapse is a description of how the valve closes. It may or may not leak mild is an attempt to classify the severity the prolapse. Mitral regurge is when blood flows backwards thru a closed mitral valve (it leaks). This is classified as trace, mild, moderate, moderate severe , and severe. Read more...
Sometimes Related. Mitral valve prolapse is a common, typically mild condition in which one or both of the valve leaflets bulge backwards during valve closure. Mitral insufficiency is abnormal, backward leakage through the closed valve. If mild, negative effects are unusual. If severe, it can cause congestive failure, rhythm disturbances and other unwanted effects. Mvp, is one of many causes of insufficiency. Read more...

Hello sir, I am having mild mitral valve prolapse with mild regurgitation. I want to know whether I will die soon or not. I am 19 year old male.

Unlikely an issue. At your age you are hundreds of times more likely to die in a car crash than from complications of mild mitral prolapse/regurgitation. Most will lead very productive lives. The choice is yours. Read more...
Unlikely. Annual followups should be done. If the prolapse and leakage worsens valve repair or replacement are options to improve situation for many years. No smoking no IV drugs attention to dental care and procedures to avoid infections. Read more...

Hello sir, I am having mild mitral valve prolapse with mild regurgitation. What will be my lifespan. What are the chances of progressing this condition?

Very good life. Reduce your risk factors by good cardiovascular behavior. Good dental hygiene avoid infections regular followup and echo may need valve repair along the way but well tolerated and good duration! Read more...
Cannot Be Certain. Unfortunately, there is no specific answer to your questions. Mitral valve prolapse can progress. If the mitral regurgitaion (mr) remains mild, then there should be little-if-any impact on life span. However, if it progresses and leads to severe mr, there can be a serious impact to quality of life and life span. Follow-up is critical, so see a cardiologist regularly to answer your questions.
