Mitral Valve Prolapse Treatment
Mitral valve prolapse usually requires no specific treatment, except reassurance, since most people do not have serious underlying heart disease. Rather, care focuses on minor changes a person can make that may prevent symptoms.
If a woman is pregnant, she should tell her obstetrician or midwife that she has mitral valve prolapse.
