Due to the significant increase of complications in young patients with mitral valve prolapse detection of this disease is important.

Aim. With the aim of studying the features of mitral valve prolapse 135 persons with mitral valve prolapse at the age of 18–25 years were examined.

Methods and results. The features of mitral valve prolapsed were studied with echocardiography, electrocardiography, cardiointervalography. It was established that mitral valve prolapse (MVP) in young age had different clinical picture. Patients with MVP 1 degree mainly had autonomic instability, and with 2 degree - mostly signs of connective tissue dysplasia.

Conclusion. The presence of MVP is associated with abnormalities of the rhythm and conductivity: 1 degree - sinus tachycardia; the 2nd - sinus arrhythmia, signs of left ventricular hypertrophy and impaired repolarization of the myocardium.
