VPCs: Vpcs have many possible causes and meanings. Many times they do not need to be treated even if very frequent. The ep physicians are specialists in rhythm and should be well qualified to judge whether treatment is indicated. You should discuss with the ep and ask for explanation and if needed reassurance as the ep has the most information about you.
