ABSTRACT
This paper reviews the prognosis of patients with angina pectoris and the current evidence linking premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) to sudden death, and discusses three newer antiarrhythmic agents with which researchers have had experience at Stanford University Medical Center. A great deal of clinical and experimental evidence suggests that PVCs are such a marker of susceptibility to sudden death and ventricular fibrillation. The article summarizes the findings of three studies relating the presence of PVCs to the prognosis in patients convalescing from a myocardial infarction.
