          Abstract

          Improvement of left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF) after radiofrequency catheter ablation (RFCA) of frequent premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) has been reported. However, most patients with frequent PVCs have a normal LVEF. In these patients subtle and early forms of PVC-induced left and right ventricular (RV) impairment may not be detected by standard echocardiographic techniques.
