Was just diagnoised with premature atrial contrations. I am a 30 year old female with a long 1st degree A/V block and a prosetic mitral valve. These premature beats are not with me all day. In the Am and after rest I seem to have a regular rythem. Can you please tell me what to expect in the future? Please help with deffining this disorder. My cardioiligist told me I do not have to restrict my activites. It's more aggravating than anything. Was wodndering why they started all of a sudden?Is it something that I may snap out of in the future? Thank you. Gina. PS. I will be having a TEE soon.

I also forgot to mention that my atrium before and after the Mitral Valve replacement was mildly enlarged. I also had percardial tamponade 3 weeks post op. Any information provided would be greatly appreciated. Thank you again.
