5 doctors agree
In brief: Yes
There are several things that can predispose to arrythmias.
The most common would be if there are blockages in the coronary arteries ( such that the heart muscle don't get enough blood flow), especially if heart muscle has been previously damaged from a heart attack . Other problems including other kinds of cardiomyopathy (weakening of the heart muscle), or disease of a heart valve, to name a few.
