In brief: Possibly

At risk for cardiac arrhythmias (irregular heartbeats), such as atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter, with rapid ventricular rate, which could lead to ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation, which can be fatal.

The devil is always in the details.
Both pvcs and mvp have a broad range of severities from insignificant to more serious. Obviously you have a physician who is working with you for you to have these diagnoses - please ask him/her this very question. That person will have all the facts that relate to your exact situation.
