Sudden Rapid Heart Failure
You are quite right - he is certainly not too old. His rapid worsening heart failure is not explained by the test results, valve leakages or AF alone. I suspect another process such as a viral illness or long standing high PVC rates need to be considered. Some studies have shown that occasionally heart failure in patients with very high PVC rates occurs. A successful ablation procedure may improve the heart function; the reason perhaps for a visit to the EP doctor. No time to write him off!
Hope this helps,
