hi and welcome. you did not mention your age.
as you know stands for mitral valve prolapse
. ie the mitral valve does not completely close when it should be and it goes back into the left atrium when the left ventricle contracts. now if it only prolapses then no need to worry because its seen in normal population also with no consequences at times... but if its leaking blood backwards then it should be taken seriously.
. the cause of the MVP is rupture of one of the bands called chordae tendinae that holds the valve , think of a parachute ....
well if it leaks then the amount of the leak is sorted out. that leak is called MITRAL REGURGITATION
. if its more than mild then antibiotic prophylaxis
and yearly follow up is necessary with monthly ECHO of heart.
with just simple MVP , yearly ECHO of heart is required and no antibiotics
one should stop smoking
control and blood pressure control , but not as part of treatment for MVP.
MVP some times can cause chest pain
also , so strenuous exertion or heavy lifting should be avoided
you can take medicines as advised for BP and cholesterols but get an ECHO done to see any mitral regurgitation. good luck
