I have multiform pvcs. I am seeing an ep he says they are benign, but they scare me. should I get a second opinion? I'm scared it will turn vt or vf

EP are experts: If you would like a second opinion, see another ep. Make sure to bring complete records and test results. You're already seeing the expert-level docs in this. As anesthesiologist, i would be very interested in a note from ep summarizing findings and test reports if you ever needed anesthesia services. ...Read more

Can you have an ablation for multi focal and multiform pvcs?

Can you have an ablation for multi focal and multiform pvcs?

PVC ablation: Hi, Yes if the PVCs are frequent and causing symptoms and decrease the quality of the life after a comprehensive evaluation including ECG, holter monitoring, TTE and possible Cardiac MRI, ablation could be considered as it's very safe and outcome is great, they map the heart to find the foci of the PVCs and then they ablate them, consult an EP doctor. ...Read more

Are WPW and multiform pvcs dangerous when you have them together.?

Are WPW and multiform pvcs dangerous when you have them together.?

Not necessarily: There are a couple of issues here: many people could mistake pacs with abnormal conduction for pvcs. Wpw is not by itself a problem with the lower chamber, so the pvcs should not imply any more danger than pvcs by themselves. That said, some conditions are associated with both WPW and pvcs and require further evaluation. I recommend a visit with a skilled electrophysiologist. ...Read more
