Mitral Valve Prolapse Mitral valve prolapse (MVP, click-murmur syndrome, Barlow syndrome) is a condition in which parts of the mitral valve in the heart are too large. Because of this, the valve closes unevenly, causing backwards leaking of blood. This serious condition, which may be inherited, can cause chest pain, palpitations, fatigue, dizziness, and other symptoms. Treatment includes beta blockers, avoiding stimulants, and occasionally surgery.
