Have MVP with trivial MR. Holter shows VPCs and dysrhythmic pattern. Sinus tachycardia. Meaning?

Hi I have been diagnosed with MVP (thickened hammocking anteior mitrel leaflet) with trivial MR (grade unknown ) and after wearing a holter for 24 hrs the report reads (writing hard to read) isolated VPCs including ventricular bigemisy pattern noted and signifigant dysrohythrimic pattern, sinus tachycardic observed with a heart rate of 148bpm. What does this mean?
My heart rate min was 46. Average 60 and max 148 while on the Holter?
Is it serious do you think, will i need medication

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

You have not stated your age, gender, personal habits, family history or co-morbidities
This means you have to go and discuss with the doctor treating you...

- You have lax/excess tissue in one valve
- You also have arrhythmia - likely Sick Sinus Syndrome / problem of the nerves of the heart... / you may need more test; probably a pacemaker...

You will need further assessment and assistance

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
