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.

Complicated issue: Cardiac arrhythmias are a complex issue and best left for your cardiologist to deal with. Occasional pvcs in an otherwise health person are harmless, however, in association with other heart disease these can be life threatening. See this site for information. Http://www. Mayoclinic. Com/health/premature-ventricular-contractions/ds00949.

Safe to exercise with multifocal pvcs?

Safe to exercise with multifocal pvcs?

It sounds: Like you have been evaluated in detail for structural heart disease based on the procedures reported and undergoing some management of PVCs based on your reported use of atenolol. Assuming no concerning finding has been found, there isn't necessarily a reason you couldn't exercise. With all of your testing, I suspect you've seen a cardiologist and should feel comfortable asking about this.

I just found out that I have multifocal pvcs. My dr doesn't seem worried. Should I be? What questions should I ask my dr?

PVC's are normal: The finding of pvc's in a 33 year old is not cause for alarm. You may want to see a cardiologist for further reassurance but this is not at all necessary.

? 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.

I have multifocal pvcs. Can my ep fone am ablation?

I have multifocal pvcs. Can my ep fone am ablation?

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.

Multifocal pvcs in a structuraally normal heart are they dangerous?

Multifocal pvcs in a structuraally normal heart are they dangerous?

Pvc: Hard to answer in this format. Your best choice is to see physician, get a good medical and family history, examinaiton and ekg just to start.

If you have pvcs in both the left and right ventricle is that called multifocal pvcs?

If you have pvcs in both the left and right ventricle is that called multifocal pvcs?

Not quite the same: Multifocal pvcs means multiple areas in the ventricles of the heart that are firing to stimulate contraction early (premature ventricular contraction). The can be in different parts of either the right or left ventricle, or both. So, having pvcs originate in both ventricles would indeed be multifocal, not all multifocal pvcs are from both ventricles. And not all pvcs are bad! Often common.

Multifocal pvcs and tachycardia, life-threating. Drs gave said no. Also have multiform pvcs.?

PVC tend to bebenign: Whether univocal or multifocal PVC does not confer high risk. They tend not to be life threatening.

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.

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.

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 have multifocal pvcs. I have read these a considered dangerous. If you havr aa structural normal heart is this still true? What treatment for these?

Yes with structural: Yes it can be serious in the presence of structural heart disease or ischemic heart disease. It requires further work up especially if you are symptomatic & possibly treatment. In the absence of heart disease & no electrolyte imbalance does not require treatment.

Multiform pvcd and multifocal pvcs and couplets. No heart disease heart structually normal. Normal eco and stress. What treatment is recommened?

Multiform pvcd and multifocal pvcs and couplets. No heart disease heart structually normal. Normal eco and stress. What treatment is recommened?

May not need treatin: 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.

Went to ER for indigestion like fullness, found out I have gallstones. While on cardiac mon. It showed 2 paired & 2 multifocal pvcs. Dangerous pvcs?

PVC: Multifocal PVC and coupling on cardiac monitor should be followed up by 12 lead ekg and rhythm strip. Unifocal PVC upto 6 in a minute are acceptable.

What chemical imbalance in the body causes frequent pvc's (paired and multifocal)? Are they dangerous? Not low in mag. Could mag supp still help?

What chemical imbalance in the body causes frequent pvc's (paired and multifocal)? Are they dangerous? Not low in mag. Could mag supp still help?

Many things: Calcium and potassium are pretty important. If you smoke, stop. Smoking makes things worse quickly. Stop coffee and tea as well as energy drinks and no doze. If you are overweight you need to lose. If you are a couch potato, start mild exercise like walking. The exercise often improves the issue. Finally, or possibly first, see your doctor. Pvcs as described can en up lethal.

Ii have pvcs frequent, multifocal and form, couplets, and big ad trig. Are pvcs mote common in lv. Or rv? Is one more dangerous than the othee?

Freq, multifocal PVC: Pvcs mainly originate from the rv outflow tract, but some originate from from the lv outflow tract, mitral and tricuspid valve annulus. A major concern is that pvcs may initiate vt, polymorphic VT and ventricular fibrillation. This risk associated with pvcs is usually limited to patients with significant underlying heart disease or at risk of developing heart disease. Need to see a cardiologist.
