Will premature ventricular contractions (very infrequent and randomly occurring) put me at a higher risk of severe heart disease in the future?

Cardiology - Cardiac Electrophysiology

In brief: No

Premature ventricular contractions or PVCs for short are extra beats from the lower chambers of the heart - the ventricles.
Symptoms include skip beats and/or palpitations. In your age group, these beats originate from the outflow tracks and have no relationship to future risk of heart disease.
