Background: Isolated monomorphic premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) are not uncommon in the pediatric population. The degree of cardiac dysfunction caused by PVCs in children without structural heart disease is unknown. Purpose: To investigate the influence of PVCs on echocardiographic left ventricular (LV) systolic function in children without structural heart disease. Methods: Forty asymptomatic children with isolated monomorphic PVCs without structural heart disease were selected. The… CONTINUE READING
