Are outflow pvcs in the right ventricle common and are the benign?

Are outflow pvcs in the right ventricle common and are the benign?

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

If you have pvcs in both the left and right ventricle is that called multifocal pvcs?

If you have pvcs in both the left and right ventricle is that called multifocal pvcs?

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

Stress test show PVC originating av node, left and right ventricle. Very symptomatic painful, meds make me so sick. Concern?

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 more

Is it.Safe to exercise with pvcs in both ventricles?

Is it.Safe to exercise with pvcs in both ventricles?

If otherwise ok: Pvcs by themselves are not contraindications to exercise. If you have frequent pvcs, see your physician for a history and physical to make sure there is no underlying cause or structural heart disease first. ...Read more

Are pvcs in right venrtrivcle more concering than left ventricle?

Are pvcs in right venrtrivcle more concering than left ventricle?

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

I have pvcs in both ventricles? Is that dangerous?

I have pvcs in both ventricles? Is that dangerous?

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 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?

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 more
