Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) is a structural heart disease affecting young adults that leads to cardiac rhythm disorders including supraventricular and mostly ventricular arrhythmias. Sudden death may be the first presentation of the disease. Ablation techniques have been used for the treatment of ventricular tachycardia in cases resistant to drug therapy. Radiofrequency is appropriate as a first approach for ventricular tachycardia ablation in ARVD; however, its… Expand
Role of Catheter Ablation in Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia1
TLDR
In the present day scenario, all patients with risk for sudden cardiac death should receive an implantable cardioverter defibrillator and radiofrequency catheter ablation remarkably reduces the frequency of defibrillsator therapies. Expand
Review Article Role of Catheter Ablation in Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia
TLDR
In the present day scenario, all patients with risk for sudden cardiac death should receive an implantable cardioverter defibrillator and radiofrequency catheter ablation remarkably reduces the frequency of defibrillsator therapies. Expand
Ablation of Ventricular Arrhythmias in Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia
TLDR
This article aims at providing a comprehensive review of RF catheter ablation of ventricular arrhythmias in the context of ARVD with variable acute and long‐term success rates. Expand
Insights into Catheter Ablation of Ventricular Tachycardias in Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy / Dysplasia
TLDR
Due to progressive nature of ARVC/D, ablation seems to be a useful tool for the patients who experience recurrent VT episodes or electrical storms, and the superiority of the combined endo- and epicardial VT ablation in this population is clear. Expand

Catheter ablation for ventricular tachycardia in patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Objective Catheter ablation is commonly performed for ventricular tachycardia (VT) in patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C). The success rate of VTExpand

Aims Radiofrequency catheter ablation is considered first line treatment for symptomatic patients with right ventricular outflow tract tachycardia (RVOT). The role of ablation in arrhythmogenic rightExpand
Long-term efficacy of catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia in patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy.
TLDR
The authors' study shows a high rate of recurrence in ARVD/C patients undergoing RFA of VT, likely reflects the fact that ARvd/C is a diffuse cardiomyopathy with progressively evolving electrical substrate. Expand
Outcomes of Catheter Ablation of Ventricular Tachycardia in Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia/Cardiomyopathy
TLDR
Although VT recurrences are common, RFA results in a significant reduction in the burden of VT in patients with ARVD/C, and although the use of 3D electroanatomic mapping systems and epicardial ablation strategies are associated with longer survival free of VT, recurrence rates remain considerable.

Catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia in arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia
TLDR
Novel techniques such as electroanatomic and voltage mapping has greatly improved the identification of the scared substrate in the settings of ARVD and have improved safety and efficacy of VT ablation procedures associated with this entity. Expand

TLDR
The authors describe a small series of five patients who presented with sustained, symptomatic VT and report on their clinical experience using entrainment pace mapping to guide radiofrequency catheter ablation of VT in patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD). Expand
Catheter ablation of ventricular tachycardia using radiofrequency current.
TLDR
Catheter ablation techniques have evolved as an alternative to map-guided surgery and proven effective in a variety of supraventricular tachyarrhythmias and possible risks associated with the use of direct current have stimulated the search for other energy sources appropriate for catheterAblation.

The basis for management of ventricular tachycardia (VT) is pharmacologic treatment which is effective, however, in only about 20 to 30% of the patients. With respect to this problem, alternativeExpand
[Treatment by endocavitary fulguration of recurrent ventricular tachycardia caused by right ventricular dysplasia].
TLDR
VT was reproducible on stress testing and on endocavitary stimulation, and the arrhythmogenic zone was localised in the postero-basal zone of the RV using three electrophysiological criteria: the recording of delayed systolic potential in sinus rhythm which overlapped into diastole during tachycardia, mapping of ventricular depolarisation during VT and results of RV "pacemapping" reproducing the appearances of the spontaneous tachycardsia.

TLDR
Catheter ablation is presented as a technique which may be performed in the electro-physiological laboratory and repeated in cases of incomplete efficacy in the treatment of chronic VT after myocardial infarction complicated by ventricular aneurysm. Expand
Identification and catheter ablation of a zone of slow conduction in the reentrant circuit of ventricular tachycardia in humans.
TLDR
Three patients who had incessant ventricular tachycardia and in whom a zone of slow conduction was identified are presented and transcatheter shocks of 100 to 240 J delivered at the pacing sites have been successful in preventing recurrences of ventricular gyrations over a follow-up period of 10 to 11 months.

TLDR
The results show that fulguration is not without risk, but in skilled hands, it gives remarkable results in the majority of cases, as well as non lethal complications in 16% of cases. Expand
Fulguration of Ventricular Tachycardia Using High Cumulative Energy: Results in Thirty‐one Patients with a Mean Follow‐Up of Twenty‐seven Months
TLDR
The procedure was successful in 25/29 patients who had no recurrence of the original VT (or sudden death) either on no antiarrhythmic therapy or on the same regimen that was ineffective before ablation (nine patients) over a follow‐up period of 27 ± 11 months. Expand

TLDR
This modified technique of radiofrequency ablation produced large homogeneous endocardial/subendocardial scars suitable for treating ventricular tachycardia and showed no evidence of an arrhythmogenic influence. Expand
