Lots of PVC’s after CRT-P placement
Doc says if metaprolol does not quell pvc’s, may need ablation, early ablation, that is. If PM sees pvc, it does not fire. He wants 100% pacing. If pacing falls below 90%, 80%, due to premature LV contractions it is very much a concern, as ventricles are not in sync. I think, if beta-blocker slows down heart rate sufficiently, PM should get in first and díctate pacing rhythm. If not, the contractions of left ventricle need to be disabled. No doubt that means total dependence on device.
My cardiologist is the best!
