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,
