Dear Sir,I am 25 year old. I have a problem that my anterior mitral leaflet is elongated,bulky,redundant & mild prolapse. I have trivial mitral regurgitation also.have i a major problem.plz tell me that when i shall in 55 year old then valve will be prolapse compare today.

Hi Sandeep,
Your mitral valve may need to be repaired at some time in the future if leakage (regurgitation) becomes worse. However, at this point in time its function is fine.  When severe, mitral regurgitation can lead to heart failure and new onset palpitations and arrhythmias. Follow this with an occasional echocardiogram, or when you start getting symptoms.
Hope this helps,
Dr T
