Mitral Valve...

We have several folks on our Message Forum that have Mitral Valve Regurgitation (MVR), which means, their mitral valve is leaking.

If you have questions, or need additional help, just drop us a note. Lee has a +3 leak (leakage goes from +1 to +4), and Ginger's Dad has had mitral valve surgery.

If you have cardiomyopathy or congestive heart failure, be aware that additional shortness of breath could be a sign that a valve is leaking. Generally, the first test a physicial will do is a dopppler echocardiogram in 2 or 3 dimension.
