Treatments For Ventricular Bigeminy
At age 29yr. Old female, following a cone biopsy, i had a reading of ventricular bigeminy. A stress test was normal. Treatment?
See below.: Best treatment is evaluation to make sure you do not have underlying structural or physiologic heart disease ( sounds like that has already been done) then to leave you alone if no abnormality is detected. Medications can suppress the extra beats but do not improve survival. ...Read more
My father 70yr , diagnosed ventricular bigeminy.Is it dangerous?Can amiodarone help controlling it?Treatment options for ventricular tachycardia?
Depends: The underlying cause for the rythm needs to be worked up and treated. If all correctable conditions are fixed., then eps may be indicated and ablation if reasonable. A defibrillator if poor heart function. Otherwise amio is reasonable but has its issues. It can affect the lungs, liver and thyroid to mention a few. Close monitoring is reccomended. ...Read more
V bigeminy: Bigeminy can occur in pathologic and in otherwise normal conditions. It can be seen with biochemical abnormalities and with structural and physiologic abnormalities. In short, there is no single cause. ...Read more
No: In the absence of any other evidence of heart disease, particularly coronary or ischemic heart disease, ventricular bigeminy is a benign rhythm that usually causes neither symptoms nor problems, and often comes and goes. There is generally no reason to treat it. If your doctor has concern, a holter monitor can be applied for 24 hours to see if there are any truly worrisome arrhythmias. ...Read more
Usually benign: Premature or "skipped" beats frome the bottom chambers of the heart are common; they sometimes occur in fixed patterns. When every other beat is a premature beat, it's called ventricular bigeminy. When every 3rd beat is premature, it's called ventricular trigeminy, and so on. Bottom line: with a normal heart, these patterns are completely benign and don't need treatment unless very troubling. ...Read more
Common: They are common, never normal altho typically benign. And yes, they can go undetected many times. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Early heart beats: Pvcs, are contractions of the large pumping chambers of your heart that occur before the top half of the heart signals the bottom half it is time to contract. Some people feel them, some don't. They can be harmless or they can be the first warning of an impending heart attack. If you have them, you need to be evaluated by your doc esp if you have risk factors, high bp, high chol, smoker, fam hx, . ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Meaning of: transmitral spectral doppler flow pattern is abnormal for age. Isolated premature ventricular contractions. Normal 24 hour holter exam.?
Possibly: Depends if pvcs are becoming more frequent ... Can potentially lead to ventricular tachycardia and possibly ventricular fibrillation, the latter essentially is cardiac arrest ... ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Premature ventricular contractions and dizziness or lightheadedness. Does that mean not enough blood to my head?
PVCs AND DIZZINESS: If there is run of pvcs and you are dizzy it can mean not enough blood going to your head, but it can be due to other causes like blockage to the carotid arteries that carry blood to the brain and you should get that checked along with a ekg to find out the cause.Id there is significant blockagre to the blood flow then it can be corrected will prevent ischemic stroke.If the arrythmia is caus corre. ...Read more
