What does venticular outflow tract with palpitations suggest?

Last week went to my doctors with continual palpitations which had starte D one week ago occasionally then becoming continual . With in 5 minuets was in an ambulance to er. Put on a 24 hour drip. All bloods ok apart from really slightly low pottassium. X ray fine echo no problems. Now on betas bisoprolol 5mg. Final diagnosis was palpitations secondary to self terminating runs of vt (right ventricular outflow tract) my question is what does this mean ? Will it recur? I am terrified to go out now. Have an appointment with a cardio in 6 months time. Will have a7day ECG in 1month.

Hi,

First thing is to confirm the diagnosis, first you are having 7 days ECG, if it's able to diagnose then it's well and good, otherwise you should get electrophysiological studies done, which is invasive study which can diagnose and treat the arrhythmia. Considering the same diagnosis, prognosis is usually good, it recurs but not very common. Averagely it recurs once in 3 years. You should continue to have medical management and definitive treatment is electrophysiological studies and ablation which is successful in more than 80% patients.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sagar Makode
