Early repolarization

Hello

I am a healthy 39 year old male. I have been diagnosed with mild bileaflet prolapse of Mitral valve many years ago and they have stayed at the same level. I have a mild regurgitation as well. All my EKGs since the last many years have been showing an early repolarization pattern and my cardio says it is a normal variant. When i read about this in the web, there are contradicting reports. Would like to check this out in the forum and seek your inputs based on your experience.

Thanks a lot.

Although early repolarization is generally considered a benign condition, an increased prevalence of early repolarization has been reported in patients with idiopathic ventricular fibrillation, a rare cause of sudden cardiac arrest.

Among patients with a history of idiopathic ventricular fibrillation, there is an increased prevalence of early repolarization.
