In brief: Arrhythmias
It depends on the arrhythmia, sometimes they are the result of scarring in the heart, or the result of valvular disease or high blood pressure.
Often they can occur without any known cause, but due to an electrical disturbance in the heart which triggers the irregular beat and it is then conducted outside the normal conduction system of the heart.

In brief: Arrhythmia
Arrhythmias have lots of potential causes, they range from structural abnormalities, through physiologic and psychologic stresses, chemical drivers, smoking and other things.
