A premature ventricular contraction PVC —also known as a premature ventricular complexventricular premature contraction or complex or complexes VPCventricular premature beat VPBor ventricular extrasystole VES —is a relatively common event where the heartbeat is initiated by Purkinje fibers in the ventricles rather than by the sinoatrial nodethe normal heartbeat initiator.

PVCs may cause no symptoms at all, but they may also be perceived as a “skipped beat” or felt as palpitations in the chest. Single beat PVC abnormal heart rhythms do not usually pose a danger. The electrical events of the heart detected by the electrocardiogram ECG allow a PVC to be easily distinguished from a normal heart beat.

However, very frequent PVCs can be symptomatic of an underlying heart condition such as arrhythmogenic right ventricular ventricuular. If PVCs are frequent or troublesome, medication beta blockers or certain calcium channel blockers may be used. Very frequent PVCs may require invasive treatment with radiofrequency ablation. PVCs may be perceived as a skipped heart beat, a strong beat, palpitationslightheadedness.

They may also cause chest pain, extrasistoolia faint feeling, fatigue, or hyperventilation after exercise. Women may be more aware of PVCs at the time of the menstrual period.

Premature ventriculat contractions may be associated with underlying heart disease, and certain characteristics are therefore elicited ventriculad PVCs and palpitation associated with syncope transient loss of consciousness or provoked by exertion are also concerning.

Premature ventricular contractions can occur in a healthy person of any age, but are more eextrasistolia in the elderly and in men. Some possible underlying causes of PVCs include:. Normally, impulses pass through both ventricles almost at the same time and the depolarization waves of the two ventricles partially cancel each other out in the ECG. However, when a PVC occurs the impulse nearly always travels through only one bundle fiber, so there is no neutralization ventrlcular this results in the high voltage QRS wave in vetricular electrocardiograph.

There are three main physiological explanations for premature ventricular contractions: Ectopic enhanced nodal automaticity suggests foci of sub-pulmonic valvular pacemaker cells that have a subthreshold potential for firing. The basic rhythm of the heart raises these cells to threshold, which precipitates an ectopic beat. Extrasistola process is the underlying mechanism for arrhythmias due to excess catecholamines and some electrolyte deficiencies, particularly low blood potassiumknown as hypokalemia.

Reentry occurs when an area of 1-way block in the Purkinje fibers and a second area of slow conduction are present. This condition is frequently seen in patients with underlying heart disease that creates areas of differential conduction and recovery due to myocardial scarring or ischemia.

During ventricular activation, one bundle tract’s area of slow conduction activates the other tract’s extrasistoliz fibers post block after the rest of the ventricle has recovered.


This resulting in an extra beat. Reentry can produce single ectopic beats, or it can trigger paroxysmal tachycardia. Triggered beats are considered to be due to after-depolarizations triggered by the preceding action potential.

These are often seen in patients with ventricular arrhythmias due to digoxin toxicity and reperfusion therapy after myocardial infarction MI. This ectopy of the ventricles when associated extrasistoliaa a structurally normal heart most commonly occurs from the right ventricular outflow tract under the pulmonic valve. The mechanism behind this is thought to be enhanced automaticity versus triggered activity. If symptoms are infrequent, other forms of continuous heart beat recording may be used, such as a or hour Holter monitor or even to day recorders if the symptoms are very occasional.

Specifically, if this shows exercise-induced ventricular tachycardia this would require specific treatment. On electrocardiography ECG or Holter premature ventricular contractions have a specific appearance of the QRS complexes veentricular T waves, which are different from normal readings.

By definition, a PVC occurs earlier than the regular normally conducted beat. Subsequently, the time between the PVC and the next normal beat is longer as the result of a compensatory pause. In some people, Extrsaistolia occur in a predictable pattern either for long periods or persistently. Depending whether there are one, two, or three normal beats between each PVC, the rhythm is called bigeminytrigeminy, or quadrigeminy.

If 3 or more PVCs occur in a row it may be called ventricular tachycardia. If someone has PVCs that all have the same appearance, they are considered “monofocal”, which is a more benign phenomenon. In contrast, if there are PVCs of multiple different appearances, they are labelled “multifocal”; this is a possible sign of higher a risk of complications.

Isolated PVCs with benign characteristics and no underlying vebtricular disease require no treatment, especially if there are limited symptoms.

The most effective treatment is the elimination of triggers particularly stopping the use of substances such as caffeine and certain drugs, like tobacco. As an overall medical condition PVCs are normally not very harmful to patients that experience them, but frequent PVCs may put patients at increased risk of developing arrhythmias or cardiomyopathy, which can greatly impact the functioning of the heart over the span of that patient’s life.

On a more serious and severe scale, frequent PVCs can accompany underlying heart disease and lead to chaotic, dangerous heart rhythms and possibly sudden cardiac death. One drawback comes from emerging data that suggests very frequent ventricular ectopy may be associated with cardiomyopathy through a mechanism thought to be similar to that of chronic right ventricular pacing associated cardiomyopathy.

Patients that have underlying chronic structural heart disease and complex ectopy, mortality is significantly increased.

Although most studies made attempts to exclude high-risk subjects, such as those with extrasisgolia of cardiovascular disease, they did not test participants for underlying structural heart disease.

In this study absence of heart of disease was excluded by echocardiography, cardiac magnetic resonance imaging in 63 persons and Holter monitoring. Overall survival was better than expected. On the other hand, the Framingham Heart Study reported that PVCs in apparently healthy people were associated with a twofold increase in the risk ventrivular all-cause mortalitymyocardial infarction and cardiac death.


Risk was also higher for people with or without baseline CHD. In the Niigata study of 63, people with year follow-up period those with PVC during a second extraxistolia had risk of atrial fibrillation increased nearly 3 times independently from extrasisto,ia factors: Recent studies have shown that those subjects who have an extremely high occurrence of PVCs several thousand a day can develop dilated cardiomyopathy.

In these cases, if the PVCs are reduced or removed for example, via ablation therapy the cardiomyopathy usually regresses. Single PVC are common in healthy persons. Age has been seen to extrasisto,ia a major role in the occurrence of PVCs throughout the population.
