Heart, 04/06/2012

The frequent occurrence of ventricular ectopics in athletes is thought to be a part of the physiological adaptation process as a consequence of regular exercise training. However, the acute impact of a premature ventricular contraction (PVC) on the mechanical sequence of the myocardium has never been shown.
