Arrhythmias and coronary artery disease

I suffered an MI almost two years ago. A single stent was installed. I recovered well with little damage to my heart. I have recently began experiencing trigeminy that has gone on for over a month now. The cardiologist says it is nothing to worry about however when it is very strong I have a hard time concentrating. It has become very worry some. Is there a treatment for this?


Hi Scott,
When a new arrhythmia such as Bigeminy and Trigeminy occurs in someone with known coronary artery disease (CAD) it requires that progression or recurrence of your CAD (including stent failure) needs to be excluded.
Thus, in your case, I recommend repeat testing, including a stress test, blood tests and possibly a Holter monitor.
Hope this helps,
Dr T
