OBJECTIVE To evaluate serum cardiac troponin I (cTnI) concentrations in Boxers with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), unaffected (control) Boxers, and control non-Boxers. ANIMALS 10 Boxers with a clinical diagnosis of ARVC defined by > or = 1,000 ventricular premature complexes (VPCs)/24 h on an ambulatory ECG, 10 control Boxers assessed as normal by the presence of < 5 VPCs/24h, and 10 control non-Boxers. PROCEDURES Serum was extracted from a blood sample from each… CONTINUE READING
