BACKGROUND Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a primary familial heart muscle disease associated with substantial cardiovascular morbidity and risk of sudden death. Efforts to discern relevant pathophysiological mechanisms have been impaired by lack of a suitable animal model. METHODS AND RESULTS ARVC was diagnosed in 23 boxer dogs (12 male; 9.1+/-2.3 years old). Clinical events alone or in combination included sudden death (n=9; 39%), ventricular arrhythmias of… CONTINUE READING
