mitral valve prolapse syndrome

prolapse of the mitral valve, often with regurgitation, associated with myxomatous proliferation of the leaflets of the mitral valve, a common, usually benign, often asymptomatic condition characterized by midsystolic clicks and late systolic murmurs on auscultation. Palpitations and chest discomfort may occur, and in some cases progressive mitral regurgitation necessitates valve replacement. Called also Barlow s., click-murmur s., floppy valve s., MVP s., and systolic click–murmur s.
