  • I have symptomatic PVCs. When do they become dangerous?

    Good question. It depends somewhat on exactly what your symptoms are. Have you ever passed out? It also depends on how many PACS you have and how many of them run together. Have you had a King of Hearts study? I would assume that you have since you've seen an electrophysiologist. If your symptoms are severe and other heart disease has been ruled out (blocked arteries, blocked or leaky valves, then there are a number of medicines that can be prescribed by your doctor.  I hope this answer has been helpful to you.
