Clinical significance of PVCs

–   Clinical significance of PVCs depends on the clinical context in which they occur.

– PVCs in young healthy patients without underlying structural heart disease are usually not associated with any increased rate of mortality.

–     PVCs in older patients, especially with underlying heart disease, are associated with an increased risk of adverse cardiac events, esp sustained ventricular dysrhythmias and sudden death.
