A 49-year-old female asked:

Normal echo: No. PVCs are extra beats from the bottom chamber of the heart.. Depending on where they originate, they could be secondary to "sick" heart muscle (ischemia/ infarct) or just a focus of extra cells that can be cured with a procedure by a cardiac electrophysiologist, if they are frequent. RVOT PVCs are affected by hormones. Talk to your cardiologist.

Fast rhythm: SVT is fast rhythm originating from the top chambers of the heart. Usually regular and rapid. It is easily cured with a procedure by a cardiac specialist: Electrophysiologist... He/ she does an EP study to diagnose the cause of the SVT & an ablation targeting the focus to get rid of the arrhythmia... 90- 95 % successful in most cases.
A 36-year-old female asked:
Dr. Hanan Morcos
Cardiac Electrophysiology 21 years experience
Can be either: Can be either one.. You need an event monitor and possibly another ep study ; ablation.. Fascicular VT is quite rare. Beta blockers don't work on it... Why are you on beta blockers if the VT was ablated successfully, any way?
