How to control frequest PVC's

My husband is having continual bigeminy and is asymptomatic, but his cardiologist will not let him go back to work without an angiogram. The doctor said that the Cardiolyte test showed no signs of ischemia but registered his EF at 42%.  His Echo was completed without any problems with an EF at 57%.  How can this be possibly SO different. He has no High blood pressure and has never had any chest pain and can work and exercise and work out just fine. But the doctor wants to do an invasive procedure anyway? Please advise all and everyone.

I don't know much about ejection fractions but have read that they can vary from test to test.  I suspect that the doctor is covering all the bases.  He has your husband's life in his hands after all and he just wants to make sure he doesn't miss anything.  Did you question why he felt it was necessary given the results of the other tests?
