MVP
Echo 7 years ago showed trace- 1+ MVP. Echo 3 months ago showed MVP 3+ with no reguritation & concentricleft ventricular hypertrophy. Long standing history of premature CAD. My cardiologist does not recommend antibiotic prophylaxis prior to dental work. I have read through the archives here and there seems to be a controversy. Present thinking is.......? Thank you.

...controversial.  The trend is towards less antibiotic usage although the "official" recommendations are for antibiotics in patients with MVP and regurgitation.
