What is Mitral Valve Relapse?
I believe you DO mean MVP. You probably misunderstood your cardiologist. Prolapse is a deformation of the valve in which valve does not completely close, causing a back flow of blood into the atrium. In most cases this is relatively benign and in fact, occurs in about 10% of people. In severe cases, you may need a value replacement, but usually this occurs at birth or after a disease damages the heart.
