In brief: Mitral prolapse

It is not likely to cause edema unless the mitral insufficiency is quite severe.
Usual mitral prolapse is mostly noise and little associated problem.

In brief: Not exavtly

Idiopathic suggests we do not know the cause.
With mitral disease and regurgitation, edema is common.
