I was told PVC's are totally benign. Some people have them almost constantly, and that they lead to nothing more. Pac's on the other hand I was told, can cause blood clots to form and be expelled from the atria. That's what I have been hearing now for ten years. From both my old cardiologist in Florida, and my new one here in North Carolina. As a matter of fact he totally disregarded my PVC's. If you have PAC's they put you on blood thinners. For PVC's nothing.

Afib can cause blood clots to form not pacs. Almost everyone gets pacs from time to time and they are benign. Almost everyone gets pvcs from time to time and they are usually benign unless there is a structural problem with the heart, heart disease, heart failure, or a genetic disease. Then they become a little more significant as they can lead to vtac or vfib.
