Prevalence and correlates of mitral valve prolapse in a population-based sample of American Indians: The strong heart study
Diabetes Mellitus, Type 2
Hypertrophy, Left Ventricular
Mitral valve prolapse is fairly common and is strongly associated with mitral regurgitation in the general population. However, it is also associated with lower body weight, blood pressure, and prevalence of diabetes; a more favorable metabolic profile and ventricular geometry; and better myocardial and renal function.
