Mitral Valve Regurgitation
Posted in the Cardiology Forum
#1 Jan 28, 2013
Cardiologists, I have a an idea that's been mulling in my head for awhile.
History: Male extremely active as a child and growing up through adulthood (early 20's). An Athlete used to high intensity workouts. Strong heart and well conditioned.
After 18 yrs of little regular exercise and almost no high intensity events, male gets diagnosed with MVR after an incident of A-Fib.
Question(s): Is it possible that the cause of the valve nto closing properly is due to the atrophy of the heart and causing a squeeze on the valve?
Is it possible that with increased exercise and intensity levels to bring the heart back up in size and decrease the pressure on the valve to stop MVR?
