Mitral Valve Prolapse: Benign Syndrome?

An enlightening look at a cardiac condition that can cause fatigue, fainting, and other symptoms—yet often goes undiagnosed. After Sharon Anderson discovered that she had Mitral Valve Prolapse, she set out to learn as much as she could about this little-known heart problem—a syndrome that can lead to palpitations, fainting, fatigue, shortness of breath, migraine headaches, chest pain, episodes of extremely rapid or irregular heartbeat, dizziness, and lightheadedness, and in some cases, fatal complications. In this comprehensive study that grew out of her research, she reveals the facts about this disease in hopes of helping others avoid the risks associated with it. The book was praised as “remarkable” by none other than J.B. Barlow, the world-renowned South African physician who first described MVP, telling Anderson, “you have probably read more on this subject than anybody else—including myself and all other cardiologists—who have been intimately involved in the field for decades.” This is not only one woman’s compelling medical memoir but a “remarkably well-written” overview of this not-so-rare condition (Leonore Fleischer, Publishers Weekly). “A revealing exposé of an often misunderstood syndrome . . . backed with sound scientific knowledge.” —Barry S. Krasner, MD
