Does mitral valve prolapse show on an EKG?
How so?

Mitral valve prolapse (MVP) is most often found during a routine physical exam when your doctor uses a stethoscope to listen to your heart. Your doctor listens for a certain "click" and/or murmur. Stretched valve flaps, as seen in MVP, can make a clicking sound as they shut. If the valve is leaking blood back into the atrium, a murmur or whooshing sound can often be heard. However, these abnormal heart sounds may come and go, so they may not be heard at the time of an exam, even if you have MVP. As a result, diagnostic tests and procedures may also be needed to diagnose MVP.

An echocardiogram is the most useful test for diagnosing MVP. This test uses sound waves to create a moving picture of your heart. An echocardiogram provides information about the size and shape of your heart and how well your heart chambers and valves are functioning. The test also can identify areas of poor blood flow to the heart, areas of heart muscle that are not contracting normally, and previous injury to the heart muscle caused by poor blood flow. The echocardiogram is a painless test that's used to look for prolapse of the mitral valve flaps and for backflow (regurgitation) of blood through the leaky valve.

Other tests that can help diagnose MVP are:
A chest x ray, which is used to look for fluid in your lungs or to see if your heart is enlarged.
An EKG (electrocardiogram), which charts the electrical activity of your heart. The EKG can show abnormal heartbeats, damage to the heart muscle, and enlargement of the heart.

Only the echocardiogram is the most useful test for diagnosing MVP.

Take care always!
