Booked this appointment through Doctoralia

What I liked: "Dr Ruzicka was very welcoming and took the time to explain everything without me having to ask."

Could improve: "I had emailed prior to the appointment which wasn't read until I was present. It would have been useful for it to have been read before as I had requested a 24 hour BP monitoring but this wasn't available."

Atrial fibrillation is a major risk factor of stroke. The top heart chambers (atria) fibrillate and stagnation of blood predisposes to clotting; the blood clot can then get dislodged into circulation and finally wedged in one of the arteries in brain cutting off blood supply and causing a stroke.

Rivaroxaban is one of anticoagulants ('blood thinning' drugs) which reduce the risk of excessive clotting and so the risk of stroke. So, the answer is yes - a previous stroke automatically places your mother in the high risk category - but she seems to be on a good treatment to reduce this risk as much as possible.

I assume that the diagnosis was mitral regurgitation (MR) due to prolapse of one of both mitral leaflets. Mitral valve normally allows only blood flow from left atrium (top heart chamber) to left ventricle (bottom heart chamber). Mitral valve prolapse occurs when one or both parts of the valve slips into the left atrium during systole (heart contraction). The significance of the prolapse depends on the degree of MR (=amount of blood that leaks back), severe MR may lead to heart failure, arrhythmias etc. In your case MR was probably judged not significant. It may remain so but in some people MR may deteriorate over the time and eventually require heart surgery with either mitral valve repair (preserving the valve) or replacement (with an artificial valve). The symptoms (breathlessness, tiredness etc) may appear relatively late in the course of the disease and it is therefore important to have mitral valve checked with echo in regular intervals as recommended.
