Dr. Ahmad M Hadied answered:

What causes multiform pvcs? And are they dangerous?

Multiple foci

Open-uri20120224-453-1jstqgg
Multiform PVCs are premature ventricular contractions originating from different parts of the ventricle. Each point-of-origin will have a unique form on an EKG. This can be dangerous if it causes tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. If this is you, you should be under the care of a cardiologist.

multiform pvcs.....all tests normal. whatis the treatment?

Depends

Artery
If you have had tests done to show no coronary artery disease(stress test),and no heart valve or heart muscle disease (such as an echocardiogram ),frequently no treatment for multifocal PVC's is necessary.If,however,you have significant symptoms,such as marked palpitations or fainting,medications such as beta blockers can be used.Your doctor can decide this for you

Dr. Matt Malkin answered:

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

EP are experts

Anesthesia
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.

Electrolytes
Depending on your age and risk factors you may need a stress test. If you feel well and no structural heart disease nothing more needs be done beyond making sure electrolytes are normal. Treatment indicated if you are significantly symptomatic and heart pump is weak.
