Mitral Regurgitation

Mitral valve regurgitation   also called mitral regurgitation, mitral insufficiency or mitral incompetence is a condition in which your heart's mitral valve doesn't close tightly, allowing blood to flow backward in your heart. As a result, blood can't move through your heart or to the rest of your body as efficiently, making you feel tired or out of breath. Treatment of mitral valve regurgitation depends on how severe your condition is, whether it's getting worse and whether you have symptoms. For mild leakage, treatment may not be necessary.

Mitral regurgitation means that one of the valves in your heart-the mitral valve-is letting blood leak backward into the heart. Heart valves work like one-way gates, helping blood flow in one direction between heart chambers or in and out of the heart. The mitral valve is on the left side of the heart. Mitral regurgitation is the most common type of heart valve disorder. causes of Mitral regurgitation are Coronary heart disease and high blood pressure, Infection of the heart valves, Mitral valve prolapse (MVP),Rare conditions, such as untreated syphilis, Rheumatic heart disease, Swelling of the left lower heart chamber. . Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) occurs when the valve between left atrium and the left ventricle doesn't close properly. symptoms includes heart attack, muscle valve break,  infection of valve ,cough, light headache, urination, palpitations, to understand the heart valve structure and function echocardiogram (an ultrasound examination of the heart) - transthoracic or trans esophageal is performed. treatment includes the drugs Beta-blockers, ACE inhibitors, or calcium channel blockers, Blood thinners (anticoagulants) to help prevent blood clots in people with atrial fibrillation. Drugs that help control uneven or abnormal heartbeats
