Can you have an ablation for multi focal and multiform pvcs?

Can you have an ablation for multi focal and multiform pvcs?

PVC ablation: Hi, Yes if the PVCs are frequent and causing symptoms and decrease the quality of the life after a comprehensive evaluation including ECG, holter monitoring, TTE and possible Cardiac MRI, ablation could be considered as it's very safe and outcome is great, they map the heart to find the foci of the PVCs and then they ablate them, consult an EP doctor. ...Read more

What causes multiform pvcs? And are they dangerous?

What causes multiform pvcs? And are they dangerous?

Multiple foci: Multiform pvcs are premature ventricular contractions originating from different parts of the ventricle. Each point-of-origin will have a unique form on an ekg. This can be dangerous if it causes tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. If this is you, you should be under the care of a cardiologist. ...Read more

PVC: Hi, the mutifocal PVC originates from different foci in Ventricle and therefore the QRSs are having different shape and voltage and it;s more dangerous because the ventricle is hyper excitable , the multiform PVC originates from one focus but the QRSs have different shape and voltage. ...Read more

I have multiform pvcs. I am seeing an ep he says they are benign, but they scare me. should I get a second opinion? I'm scared it will turn vt or vf

EP are experts: If you would like a second opinion, see another ep. Make sure to bring complete records and test results. You're already seeing the expert-level docs in this. As anesthesiologist, i would be very interested in a note from ep summarizing findings and test reports if you ever needed anesthesia services. ...Read more

What chemical imbalance in the body causes frequent pvc's (paired and multifocal)? Are they dangerous? Not low in mag. Could mag supp still help?

What chemical imbalance in the body causes frequent pvc's (paired and multifocal)? Are they dangerous? Not low in mag. Could mag supp still help?

Many things: Calcium and potassium are pretty important. If you smoke, stop. Smoking makes things worse quickly. Stop coffee and tea as well as energy drinks and no doze. If you are overweight you need to lose. If you are a couch potato, start mild exercise like walking. The exercise often improves the issue. Finally, or possibly first, see your doctor. Pvcs as described can en up lethal. ...Read more

Safe to exercise with multifocal pvcs?

Safe to exercise with multifocal pvcs?

It sounds: Like you have been evaluated in detail for structural heart disease based on the procedures reported and undergoing some management of PVCs based on your reported use of atenolol. Assuming no concerning finding has been found, there isn't necessarily a reason you couldn't exercise. With all of your testing, I suspect you've seen a cardiologist and should feel comfortable asking about this. ...Read more

I've read that multifocal pvcs are not benign, but me ep says they are.Im scared. What is thevtreatment  of multifocal pvcs and are the dangerous?

?Heart ok otherwise: You basically need to know that your heart is structurally normal. Based upon your age and risk factors you may need a stress test to be sure you do not have obstructive coronary artery disease. Generally treatment of pvcs may do more harm than good. Treat if there is progressive weakness of heart muscle from pvcs or if any more arrhythmias such as ventricular tachycardia is suspected or seen. ...Read more

I have multifocal pvcs. Can my ep fone am ablation?

I have multifocal pvcs. Can my ep fone am ablation?

Doubtful: Pvcs can be normal, or marker for more serious disorder. Since they are multifocal, very unlikely to be able to find a location to ablate. If the heart is structurally normal, no coronary disease, electrolytes normal, and no drug influence, they may be ok as is. ...Read more

What causes multifocal pvcs, what is the treatment for multifocal pvcs, and how dangerous are they?

What causes multifocal pvcs, what is the treatment for multifocal pvcs, and how dangerous are they?

PVCs: For the most part, they're benign. They're premature ventricular contractions that arise from different sites in the ventricle. There's not overwhelming evidence that in healthy people with asymptomatic pvcs that they're at risk for anything bad happening, and most docs wouldn't treat people with asymptomatic pvcs. But if you have other heart problems, you should consult with your cardiologist. ...Read more

Ii have pvcs frequent, multifocal and form, couplets, and big ad trig. Are pvcs mote common in lv.Or rv? Is one more dangerous than the othee?

Ii have pvcs frequent, multifocal and form, couplets, and big ad trig. Are pvcs mote common in lv.Or rv? Is one more dangerous than the othee?

Freq, multifocal PVC: Pvcs mainly originate from the rv outflow tract, but some originate from from the lv outflow tract, mitral and tricuspid valve annulus. A major concern is that pvcs may initiate vt, polymorphic VT and ventricular fibrillation. This risk associated with pvcs is usually limited to patients with significant underlying heart disease or at risk of developing heart disease. Need to see a cardiologist. ...Read more
