BACKGROUND This study aimed to evaluate the prevalence and type of mutations in the major desmosomal genes, Plakophilin-2 (PKP2), Desmoglein-2 (DSG2), and Desmocollin-2 (DSC2), in arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) patients. We also aimed to distinguish relevant clinical and ECG parameters. METHODS AND RESULTS Clinical evaluation was performed according to the Task Force Criteria (TFC). We analyzed the genes in (a) 57 patients who fulfilled the ARVD/C TFC (TFC… CONTINUE READING
