Abstract

Arrhythmia-induced cardiomyopathy secondary to frequent ventricular premature contractions is a well-studied phenomenon; however, there is a paucity of data showing a similar association with frequent atrial premature contractions (APCs). Early recognition and successful APC ablation can reverse left ventricular dysfunction in these patients. (Level of Difficulty: Beginner.)
