PVC Burden and Its Temporal Variability: 24/48 Hours or Longer Monitoring?

Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs), commonly experienced as palpitations from occasional skipped heartbeats, are typically benign but can escalate to severe symptoms or heart failure in individuals with a high PVC burden. Understanding the most effective diagnostic tests for quantifying PVCs is crucial for guiding appropriate management strategies.

In this interview, Jim Cheung MD, FACC and Anthony N. DeMaria MD, MACC discuss PVC burden and its temporal variability.
