I think it’s a very bold statement to say, “If you have mitral valve prolapse but do not have any symptoms, you will not need treatment.” There are plenty of people who do not recognize their symptoms, so they think they have none. There’s a huge difference between having no symptoms and not recognizing symptoms, and this distinction can mean the difference between life and death.
I have “mitral valve prolapse” set up as an automated Google search for news, so I’m immediately notified when these articles come out. I find it interesting that one day an article is released about how serious this condition is, and the next day an article like today’s comes out, saying how it’s not serious (usually) at all.
To save lives, it seems to me all cases should be treated as serious.
