ventricular ectopy

ventricular ectopy

A recent term for ventricular ectopic (premature) beats, also known as EXTRASYSTOLES. There are indications that ventricular ectopy during exercise may be due to perfusion defects in the heart muscle, and that frequent ectopic beats after exercise may be more significant indications of risk than when they occur during exercise.

[46] reported that the higher levels of NT-proBNP levels are independently associated with the incidence of frequent ventricular ectopy and complex ventricular ectopy in a moderately large, community-based population.
This association is also seen with certain cardiovascular irregularities as well as diabetes: "Subclinical magnesium and potassium deficiencies are strongly associated with increased ventricular ectopy and arrhythmias."
Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) of ventricular ectopy has been postulated as a therapeutic approach in Brugada syndrome patients.
Citing the most recent guidelines, symptomatic bradycardia with congenital AVB has been accepted as a Class I indication for pacemaker implantation in cases such as wide QRS escape and complex ventricular ectopy (9).

Reported ECG changes in the setting of GV include 1st-degree atrioventricular block, ventricular ectopy, atrial fibrillation, and inferior ST elevation [4].
Frequent ventricular ectopy during exercise predicted a 1.8 increased risk of death and a 2.4 risk of death during the recovery phase [48].

This is also helpful as the physical irritation of ventricular myocardium by the ablation catheter, with resultant troublesome ventricular ectopy, is avoided.
Bethell et al (15) studied electrocardiographic findings of patients with severe diphtheria and found the degree of ventricular ectopy at the time of presentation significantly associated with fatal outcome.
