Mitral Valve
02 months ago I was diagnosed as follows:
Mitral Valve Prolapse.  Thickened anterior mitral valve leaflet with prolapsing tip for 0.6cm in left atrial cavity with loss systolic coaptation.  Moderate mitral regurgitation (MJA=5.0 cm2); eccentric two jets; one directed anteromedially and the other direct posterolateral reaching mild left atrial cavity [MR volume=45ml; MR fraction=43%; EROA=0.35cm2]. moderate pulmonary hypertension. RVSP 36mm Hg - Rest and RVSP 42mmHg during exercise.
Normal - left ventricular internal dimensions, systolic function, EF60%
Normal - aortic valve and flow
No intracardiac masses or thrombi
Normal Pericardium

I would like to know what does this mean in simple terms and what precautions I can take to stop further situation getting worse.  thanks. Joseph
