Multifocal pvcs in a normal heart..What is the risk of developing a ventricular arrythmia?

Multifocal pvcs in a normal heart..What is the risk of developing a ventricular arrythmia?

May be a risk: As in earlier answer, multifocal pvcs may not need treatment. But you should have someone explore for possible causes of pvcs that are reversible. These can be from such things as caffeine, alcohol, other drugs, medications, thyroid disease, and some other illnesses.Some people have many pvcs.We learned that sometimes treatment can be worse than the funny rhythm. But there can be a risk so see doc. ...Read more

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?

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 more

Can someone with a normal EKG and EKG treadmill stress test still have structural heart problems? Frequent pvc's. Few paired/multifocal. Will it show?

Can someone with a normal EKG and EKG treadmill stress test still have structural heart problems? Frequent pvc's. Few paired/multifocal. Will it show?

Possible: Ecg and treadmill ECG test are by no means comprehensive evaluation of the heart and do not rule out all heart disease when normal. Structural heart disease would be best assessed by imaging such as echocardiography. ...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

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

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?

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?

Too many: I hope that all these tests were not ordered by the same physician, at least not within a short time. 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
