I recently had a holter monitor test, revealing around 540 PVCs in 48 hours, and a small number of PACs, around 40 or so.
An echocardiogram revealed mild enlargement of the left ventricle,but was not considered a concern. I have an ejection fraction of 65%, and was assured my "pump was O.K." Similarly I had tests which revealed no arterial blockages.
I have experienced "runs" of PVCs, up to 12, with no ordinary beats between them, on three occasions in the last three weeks. Of course, the holter monitor didn't catch them!
My doctor says the PVCs themselves are not concerning, but is a bit non-commital about the runs, saying they would need treatment if they "got worse".
How dangerous are these runs?
I would like to try to ignore the PVCs and get on with my life, but I cannot if I am always waiting for this increase in "runs".
Thanks for your attention!
