    Mitral Valve Prolapse

    Any one have heart valve problems with your scoliosis? I may have it & there are some indications that two two may be related, especially where there is a family history of scoliosis?

    Well Marfan's syndrome at least is associated with both scoliosis and heart/aorta issues.

    Both scoliosis and MVP are relatively common, so it's no surprise that some of us would have both diagnoses.
