It has been shown that all forms of cardiomyopathy, including the dilated, hypertrophic, restrictive, and right ventricular arrhythmogenic forms, are found in African populations. Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a rare muscle disease characterised by fibrofatty replacement of the right ventricular myocardium, leading to electrical instability and eventual heart failure. Dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM) is a disease characterised by a reduction in ventricular wall thickness… CONTINUE READING
