My heart structurally fine on echo, MRA, ECG, MRI, holter monitors. Is it unlikely my frequent PVCs will turn into Ventricular tachycardia/death?

Unlikely. With a normal heart based on all the studies you have had, PVCs are usually benign and not like to precipitate ventricular tachycardia. The caveat is that you are on diltiazem as well as amitriptyline both of which can affect the heart rhythm. Thus you should continue to have your EKG monitor. All the best to you!

I have ectopics/PVCs, some weeks I have hardly any, other days I get them every few beats. Echo, MRA, monitors, ECG, MRI of heart all normal. Worry?

Probably OK. Most people will have some ectopic beats of PVCs or PACs (premature atrial contractions) If these are isolated and do not cause fainting, dizziness, shortness of breath, chest pains, etc. they are probably benign. You describe a fairly complete heart workup which, if normal, makes these minor arrhythmias even less concerning. If you continue to feel anxious or worried, talk to your doc. Read more...

Suffering with pvc ectopic beats for years with runs of 5-6 pvc. My ECHO and ECG however was 100% normal. Likley I go into Ventricular Tachycardia??

Take seriously. i recommend a consultation with a cardiac electro physiologist. Recent studies have correlated the amount of PVCs a person has over a 24 hour period with the development of a weakening of the heart muscle (CHF). Therefore, a thorough evaluation and frequent follow up needs to be undertaken with consideration for medications that suppress PVCs while also being useful for preventing weak hearts. Read more...

Got dysautonomia sympathetic and parasympthetic ans always fighting can this cause pvcs? Heart MRI, stress ecg, echo, ecg, 24h ECG all normal

Pvc's very common. everyone has pvc's. A finding more closely associated with dysautonomia is problems on blood pressure control (tilt table test--you get strapped onto a Frankenstein slab, tilted... bloodpressure doesn't adjust and falls). if 24 hr ECG normal,, then less likely a significant arrhythmia is present, but tilt table is the real test.

24yr old. Echo, ecg, 24hr ecg, heart mri + mri angiogram to rule out coronary anomalies. All normal. Would you say structurally normal even with pvcs?

Yes. I heart is considered structurally normal in the absence of structural disease. Arrhythmia does not constitute structural abnormality. A high PVC burden can result in decreased LV ejection fraction. At that point one would be considered to have a structurally abnormal heart. Read more...
