Detailed Answer:
Hello

After going through the medical details provided by you i understand your concern i would like to tell you that as the patients is not having any symptoms as of now and its just the ecg and holter monitoring on which frequent VPC are getting noticed as he will do good with the help of medications which the doctor has already started.

Majority of the patients responds very well to beta blockers and there wont be any significant complications and the good thing is that his LV function is good.

Future risk includes development of arrythmias( not specific to this case as of now) which might require hospitalization.

I hope this information will answer your query.

Kind Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap
