Mitral Valve Prolapse - Treatment Overview

Most people with mitral valve prolapse (MVP) do not have symptoms and do not need treatment. Regular checkups every 3 to 5 years are usually all that is required. A normal lifestyle and regular exercise are recommended for most people who have MVP.1

If you have symptoms, such as chest pain or palpitations, you might take a beta-blocker medicine.
