Clinical and functional characteristics of athletes with mitral valve prolapse


The purpose: to conduct a comprehensive assessment of clinical and functional characteristics of athletes with mitral valve prolapse (MVP). Material and Methods. 541 athletes were examined for the study, 132 athletes with MVP were in the main group, 132 athletes without MVP were in the comparison group. Functional, laboratory and diagnostic methods of examination in the framework of an in-depth medical examination were used in the study. Results. The examined athletes with mitral valve prolapse often have changes in the peripheral blood, immune and endocrine systems, macroelement composition, ECG, functional sample. Conclusion. Clinical and functional state of athletes with MVP is different from athletes without MVP, what requires an adequate assessment of MVP to improve the effectiveness of the training process with the possible use of medical and diagnostic and preventive measures.
