Medical - Medical (general) / hospitalisation report
French term or phrase: ESC
In the list of this patient's medical history, which includes a host of cardiac disorders, we find "trouble de rythme avec ESC et bigéminisme".

I am not finding any explanations for this abbreviation, although of course related to cardiac rhythm disorders would be "extra-systole ventriculaire" and "extra-systole auriculaire/atriale".

Could "ESC" be something else based on "extra-systoles" or is it perhaps just a typing error in view of the position of C and V on the keyboard?

Explanation:
I totally agree that this is a typo. ESV is associated with arrhythmia, so a logical choice.
