I read that multifocal pvcs are usually in a diseased heart. But my dr is not worries about mine. Should i be concerned? Can ablation be performed?
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I've had 4 ekgs, 2 stress, 6 holters, mri, cat 4 echos. Are these enough test see if structrallu normal? What could be causing multifocal pvcs?

The repeated tests you list, if all normal, are more than enough to definitively exclude structural heart disease. "multifocal pvcs", in-and-of-themselves, are not life - threatening. They need treatment only if they cause troubling symptoms, or if there is underlying heart disease. See an ep doc. ...Read more
