Abstract
Abstract
Background : Mitral valve prolapse ( MVP ) is the most common valvular cardiac disease in developed countries, with serious potential cardiac complications. The Aim of this study is to determine the prevalence & clinical presentations of MVP patients in Karbala Governorate, Iraq. Medical records & Trans-Thoracic Echocardiography ( TTE) data of 1456 patients visiting Cardiology department of Imam Al-Hujjah Hospital , Karbala , Iraq in the period between May 2018 till August 2019 were used. All patients with MVP were recruited into this study & their demographic, clinical & TTE data were analyzed retrospectively.
Results : The prevalence of MVP is 4.4% with female predominance .Mean age of MVP patients is 39.4 20.5 years. The Non-classical type is more common (66%) than the classical one (34%). The vast majority of MVP patients had mild prolapse ( N=58, 90%). The most common MR severity associated with MVP was Mild ( 40%) , & the most common presenting symptoms of MVP was chest pain (51%) & SOB (50%). MVP types were strongly related with age ( the Classical one occur more in younger age ) & severity of MR. Degree of MR associated with MVP was significantly related with age , MVP type, severity of MVP & palpitation.
Conclusion : The prevalence of MVP in Karbala Governorate is similar to that reported in other international studies , with a female predominance. MVP tends to present more in young adults. The most common presenting symptoms are chest pain & SOB, however, MVP may have a more benign course than previously thought.

Key words: Mitral valve , Mitral valve prolapse , Mitral regurgitation , Trans-Thoracic Echocardiography, Prevalence.
