Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia (ARVC/D) is a progressive genetic cardiomyopathy characterized by progressive fatty and fibrous replacement of ventricular myocardium. The clinical presentation is marked by ventricular arrhythmias, some fatal. The disease has evolved from a primary electrical/electrophysiological disorder (in the 1980s-1990s) to a diagnostic imaging conundrum (in the 2000s) to the current day understanding of a genetic cardiomyopathy caused by defects in cell-cell adhesion proteins or intracellular signaling components. The pathogenesis, clinical presentation, and the genetics of the disease are discussed in this review. © 2013 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.
