Facts About Mitral-Valve Prolapse: NHLBI (Excerpt)

When the valve leaflets flap, a clicking sound may be heard. Sometimes the prolapsing of the mitral valve allows a slight flow of blood back into the left atrium. This is called "mitral regurgitation," and may cause a sound called a murmur. Some people with MVP have both a click and a murmur and some have only a click. Many have no unusual heart sounds at all; those who do may have clicks and murmurs that come and go. (Source: excerpt from Facts About Mitral-Valve Prolapse: NHLBI)
