Mitral Valve


New Member
Hi Doc,

As a kid I was diagnosed with MVP. It has never required any treatment at all and has never affected any aspect of my life whatsoever. I recently applied to become an ATC and was wondering if this would be a major roadblock. I've never disclosed it before because I never thought of it being heart disease. Thanks.

Mitral valve prolapse should not be a big problem. The most they will ask for is an echocardiogram and a note from the cardiologist.
