Mitral valve prolapse

Jump to: navigation, search
Mitral valve prolapse (aka primary form of myxomatous degeneration of the mitral valve aka floppy mitral valve syndrome) is a valvular heart disease characterized by the displacement of an abnormally thickened mitral valve leaflet into the left atrium during systole. There are various types of MVP broadly classified as classic and nonclassic. In its nonclassic form MVP carries a low risk of complications and often can be kept minimal by dietary attention.
