Current concepts in mitral valve prolapse (MVP)

Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is a common valvular disorder which can occur at all ages. It is the most frequent cause of mitral regurgitation in developed countries. MVP is associated with significant morbidity in symptomatic patients, whereas the uncomplicated form of MVP has a benign natural history. Mitral regurgitation (MR) due to MVP can be repaired with a low risk of mitral regurgitation recurrence and reoperation. Early surgery is associated with low surgical risks and better outcomes.
