Maybe: Ablation for PVCs can be curative. Some patients can also benefit from medications which suppress the PVCs. Medications are typically not as effective, but when they do work, they can help a patient avoid an invasive procedure. Furthermore, PVCs sometimes go away just as suddenly as they appeared, which might occur weeks or months after they start.
