Are Pvcs More Dangerous If You Have Them In The Left And Right Ventricles
Not quite the same: Multifocal pvcs means multiple areas in the ventricles of the heart that are firing to stimulate contraction early (premature ventricular contraction). The can be in different parts of either the right or left ventricle, or both. So, having pvcs originate in both ventricles would indeed be multifocal, not all multifocal pvcs are from both ventricles. And not all pvcs are bad! often common. ...Read more
Usually Not: Pvc's are usually not dangerous. Sometimes increased frequency can lead to other heart arrhythmias, but this is less common. If bothersome, sometimes medication can be prescribed, and cutting out caffeine from the diet can be helpful. An ECG through your primary care provider or cardiologist would be appropriate at this time. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily: Much more important than the location is the frequency. Infrequent pvcs are common and rarely dangerous. Frequent pvcs have greater potential to cause serious rhythm disturbances, regardless of the ventricle of origin. Locating the origin is important mainly in deciding if there is a single focus, and for cardiologists who are considering (relatively rare) ablation (destruction) of such a focus. ...Read more
Stress test show PVC originating av node, left and right ventricle. Very symptomatic painful, meds make me so sick. Concern?
Need Echo +/- CT/MR: A bit unclear as PVC cannot originate from av node. That said, extra beats brought out by exercise, especially ventricular extra beats raise the question of structural abnormality such as abnormal path of coronary, or heart muscle and conduction disease. Echo or cardiac mr can help look for muscle disease, and an mr or ct for an abnormal coronary. An electrophysiologist may further define problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Biventricular: Generally pvcs do involve both ventricles. The term for this is biventricular. ...Read more
PVC's: Premature ventricular contractions...Usually they are benign, but need to be followed. ...Read more
PVC's: Pvc's are common especially the older we get, and generally benign. Our treatments are generally more dangerous than having pvc's. However, sometimes an electrolyte abnormality will make these more common so it is important that if there is a sudden start or increase that we look at those. This involves some simple blood work. ...Read more
I've had a full cardiac workup all normal. Is pvcs in both ventricle benign? Common? Is there other people that have pvcs in both ventricles?
Fairly common: Premature ventricular contractions (pvcs) are a common arrhythmia, often described as skipped beats. Pvcs may originate from different locations within either ventricle. Pvcs are usually benign & may be caused by structural damage, electrolyte imbalance, stimulants, or happen without cause. However, pvcs may also indicate serious heart problems, so you should see your doctor regularly to monitor. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
