I am happy you do not have ARVD.
1. The biofeedback relaxation techniques are very reasonable to try. They put you at virtually no risk and have the potential for improving your symptoms.
2. I am not sure of the medication you are referring to, however beta blockers are good medication to control PVCs. Check with your doctor this drug may be a beta blocker.
3. Your doctor is correct in the description of the PVC ablation technique. If your symptoms are not severely limiting and you have no compromise in the pumping function of your heart due to PVCs, the less invasive strategy is most reasonable.
Thanks for your question,
Hi, I think it's possible the drug you are talking about may be toprol. I am presently taking that to control blood pressure and pac's. I take toprol xl 25mg. If that's it, so far it has seemed to do the trick. I began June 17th and have not had an episode since thank goodness! Maybe l or 2 bloops here or there but so far that's it. I was having them for hours at a time back in May and June. Just wondering if that may be the drug you're referring to. Also happy for you on your diagnosis. It sounds so much better than what it could have been. Good luck.
Basically, in my case Dr. Calkins explained that once your are in for a EP study it is not guaranteed that not all of the pvc can triggered. In order words, there maybe some that hide and cannot be triggered. In addition if the PVC originate from behind the Right Ventricular outflow track, ablation is not recommended because the risks outweight the benefits.
