Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/ dysplasia (ARVC/D) is an inherited heart muscle disease that predominantly affects the right ventricle (RV). It is characterized pathologically by RV myocardial atrophy with fibrofatty replacement and clinically by ventricular electric instability with ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation that may lead to sudden death, primarily in young people and athletes.1 Later in the disease evolution, progression of RV muscle disease and left… CONTINUE READING
