Heart peak

How dangerous is it for heart if it peaked to 100% for a couple of mins? Started at 130bpm at the top of the hill ended 174 quickly went down to 140 . Have mild mitral and triscupid regurgitation. I had no symptoms (pain, dizziness, Extreme fatigue etcc..)

I asked my doctor this once and he said it should be fine but didn't recommend going to my max, no real additional benefit. Having said that I take it that high on the bike a couple times a week. My normal target is 85% of max.
