Please can you tell me if early repolarization is a life threatening condition, my cardiologist diagnosed me with this condition, he said that is normal.Please give me your opinion. I am 37 years old male, smoke 2 cigarretes a day, dont drink, exercise at least 3 times a week, and I have a healthy diet, my last echo doppler was normal. Thx in advance. Regards.
PS: I have a lot of PVC's during the day. Sorry for my bad english
Repolarization is the electro-phsyiological phenomonon of specialized heart cells that contracts the heart chambers. It is not a cause to worry, as the condition is not uncommon and sometimes it can be seen or felt as a skipped beat, but it really is an early heartbeat (repolarization).
PVC's can be a source of early repolariztions and usually not considered a serious event.
