Multifocal Pvcs In A Structuraally Normal Heart Are They Dangerous
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 3 more doctor answers
My heart ultra sound is normal.Monitor shows premature beats.Did not catch the extremely random fast beats.What are those are they deadly?
Loop monitor option: Everyone has some extra beats, usually harmless especially with normal ultrasound (echo) indicating no structural heart disease. Hard to tell from your description what kind of rapid beats you have. Could be an abnormal rhythm or just an adrenaline/stress reaction. Many cardiologists have a small loop monitor that can be easily worn for a month to catch things that are missed on a 24 hour holter. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Is there a correlation between people that are prone to having (benign) PVCs and Sudden Cardiac Arrest? (PVCs at a rate from 0-500 per day)
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

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.

Can benign PVCS kill you?EKG and Echocardiogram are normal. Monitor shows less than 1% PVCS. Problem is I feel them and anxiety is killing me

This could be using Kardia from AliveCor or an event monitor. You can document if you have PAC's or PVC's. Treatment will depend on findings. Best of luck! ...Read more
