Atrial extrasystole. Anatomical computer artwork of a transverse section through a human heart during ventricular contraction in extrasystole. Premature ventricular contraction (PVC), or extrasystole, is a relatively common event where the heartbeat is initiated by Purkinje fibres in the ventricles (chambers at top and right) rather than by the sinoatrial node, the normal heartbeat initiator.
