In brief: It depends.

Most ventricular premature beats (vpbs) do not require treatment.
Runs of vpbs such as ventricular tachycardia are potentially serious and may require medications or ablation or an implanted defibrillator. A careful evaluation is essential in order to know what if any treatment is appropriate.

In brief: Life style betablock

Eliminating common PVC triggers — such as caffeine or tobacco — can decrease the frequency and severity of your symptoms. Medications. Beta blockers — which are often used to treat high blood pressure and heart disease — can suppress premature contractions. Other medications, such as calcium channel blockers, or anti-arrhythmic drugsmay be used if interfering with heart function.
