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.
in patients with left ventricular dysfunction: Should it be treated?
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
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
The patient was not noted to have frequent ventricular ectopy
or nonsustained runs of ventricular tachycardia on telemetry.
Reported ECG changes in the setting of GV include 1st-degree atrioventricular block, ventricular ectopy
, atrial fibrillation, and inferior ST elevation .
Frequent ventricular ectopy
during exercise predicted a 1.8 increased risk of death and a 2.4 risk of death during the recovery phase .
was 5374, with 390 V-Runs and 680 V-Pairs, Ventricular Bigeminy events were 31 and ventricular Trigeminy events were 6.
Has wide QRS-escape-rhythm, complex ventricular ectopy
, or ventricular dysfunction.
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.
