Premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) is one of the most common situations in the current cardiology practice. Although PVCs are generally benign in people without any structural heart disease, they may be associated with left ventricular dysfunction, cardiomyopathy, and, rarely, sudden death. Recently, there has been a considerable research in the pathophysiology of PVC, several clinical presentations in different situations, new proposals of successful diagnostic methods, and treatment modalities. Finally, the American College of Cardiology Electrophysiology Council has published a special report that deals with all the aspects of PVC. We reviewed the important points from this report that can be reflected in our daily practice.

Keywords: Premature ventricular contraction, left ventricular, cardiomyopathy, sudden death
