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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Common: They are common, never normal altho typically benign. And yes, they can go undetected many times. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
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 moreGet help from a doctor now ›
Holter 48 hr showed 31 xtra beats from atria. If they cause premature ventricular contractions is it dangerous?Read that prexcitaion can cause death??
Atrial arrhythmias: Most probably you don't have preexcitation. You probably have atrial ectopics (extra beats) common with stress, caffeine, hormonal changes, lack of sleep. Rare for pre-excitation to cause death. ...Read moreGet help from a doctor now ›
