Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a relatively under-recognized hereditary cardiomyopathy. It is characterized pathologically by fibro-fatty infiltration of right ventricular (RV) myocardium and clinically by consequences of RV electrical instability. Timely intervention with device therapy and pharmacotherapy may help reduce the risk of arrhythmic events or sudden cardiac death. Here, we describe a classic case of a young adult with ARVC and a brief literature review. The patient presented with exertional palpitations and ARVC was suspected after his routine electrocardiogram (EKG) revealed symmetric T wave inversions and possible epsilon waves in right precordial leads...

Aims: The arrhythmic risk stratification of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) remains controversial. We evaluated the long-term distribution of life-threatening arrhythmic events assessing the impact of periodical risk reassessment. Methods and results: Ninety-eight ARVC patients with no previous major ventricular arrhythmias were retrospectively analysed. Patients were assessed at baseline, at 22 [inter-quartile range (IQR) 16-26], 49 (IQR 41-55) and 97 months (IQR 90-108)...

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia is an inherited autosomal dominant pathology with an estimated prevalence of 1:2,500 to 1:5,000, being higher in males (3:1). It is characterized histologically by replacement of cardiomyocytes by fibro-adipose tissue, which predisposes to ventricular arrhythmias, right ventricular failure, and sudden cardiac death. The main goal of treatment is to reduce the risk of sudden death and improve the quality of life of patients. We present the case of a 23 year old woman whose clinical symptoms started with palpitations, chest pain with physical activity, syncope and headache 6 years ago during her first pregnancy...

BACKGROUND: Knowledge of complex arrhythmogenic substrates can help plan ventricular tachycardia (VT) ablation in idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy (DCM). OBJECTIVE: We sought to assess whether pre-procedural late-gadolinium enhancement magnetic resonance imaging (LGE-MRI) can improve ablation outcomes in DCM. METHODS: Consecutive patients (n=96) with idiopathic DCM underwent VT ablation with open-irrigated catheters (2006-2016). Before 2012, LGE-MRI was not performed at our institution in patients with implanted devices, but it has been performed routinely in all patients after the implementation of a new MRI protocol in 2012...

BACKGROUND: The distribution of frequency power (DFP) within the QRS complex (QRS) is unclear. This study aimed to investigate the DFP within the QRS in ischemic cardiomyopathy (ICM) with lethal ventricular arrhythmias (L-VA). A computer simulation was performed to explore the mechanism of abnormal frequency power. METHODS: The study included 31 ICM patients with and without L-VA (n = 10 and 21, respectively). We applied the continuous wavelet transform to measure the time-frequency power within the QRS...

Aims: Right ventricular outflow tract (RVOT) dilation is one of the echocardiographic criteria in the 2010 revised Task Force Criteria (TFC) of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia (ARVC/D). However, studies comparing cardiac magnetic resonance (CMR) and transthoracic echocardiography (TTE) suggest a lower diagnostic accuracy of TTE due to its operator dependence and limited reproducibility. The goal of this study was to compare the 2010 TFC measures of RVOT dilation with three alternative measures for improving the echocardiographic assessment of RVOT in patients with ARVC/D...

BACKGROUND: Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is traditionally considered as primarily affecting the right ventricle. Mutations in genes encoding desmosomal proteins account for 40-60% of cases. Genotype-phenotype correlations are scant and mostly non gene-specific. Accordingly, we assessed the genotype-phenotype correlation for desmoplakin (DSP) missense and non-missense mutations causing ARVC. METHODS AND RESULTS: We analyzed 27 ARVC patients carrying a missense or a non-missense DSP mutation, with complete clinical assessment...

The arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) is a genetic disease frequently associated with desmosomal mutations, mainly attributed to dominant mutations in the Plakophilin-2 (PKP2) gene. Naxos and Carvajal are the syndromic forms of ARVD/C due to recessive mutations. Herein, we report an autosomal recessive form of nonsyndromic ARVD/C caused by a mutation in the PKP2 gene. After examination and implementation of diagnostic modalities, the definite diagnosis of ARVD/C was confirmed by detection of ventricular tachycardia with a left bundle branch configuration and a superior axis, T-wave inversion in right precordial leads (i...

We report a case of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia (ARVD) in order to evaluate the course of an under-recognized form of cardiomyopathy with a vast array of clinical manifestations. The patient is a 49-year-old white woman transferred from an outside hospital due to dyspnea and persistent hypoxia. She had a pertinent family history that included a sister who died suddenly in her 30s from unexplained heart failure. Initial work-up for hypoxia was unrevealing. Transthoracic echocardiography revealed isolated right ventricular dysfunction with dilation and multiple trabeculations...

Once arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) is diagnosed, the incidence of sudden cardiac death (SCD) is rare and prognosis is favorable, highlighting the value of early disease recognition. To inform strategies to diagnose ARVD/C before SCD, we sought to characterize clinical, genetic, and family history features of ARVD/C cases first recognized after SCD or resuscitated SCD (sudden cardiac arrest [SCA]). We identified 66 ARVD/C cases submitted to the Johns Hopkins ARVD/C Registry in whom disease was first recognized after SCD (n = 45) or SCA (n = 21) and compared their clinical, genetic, and demographic features with 352 patients (227 probands) diagnosed with ARVD/C by 2010 Task Force Criteria before any arrest...

Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway plays essential roles in heart development as well as cardiac tissue homoeostasis in adults. Abnormal regulation of this signaling pathway is linked to a variety of cardiac disease conditions, including hypertrophy, fibrosis, arrhythmias, and infarction. Recent studies on genetically modified cellular and animal models document a crucial role of Wnt/β-catenin signaling in the molecular pathogenesis of arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (AC), an inherited disease of intercalated discs, typically characterized by ventricular arrhythmias and progressive substitution of the myocardium with fibrofatty tissue...

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) is a congenital cardiac disease with myocardial involvement, most probably right ventricular (RV) dysfunction, accounting for 20% of sudden cardiac deaths. Characterized by the fibro-fatty infiltration of the RV free wall, ARVD/C presents in adolescents with ventricular arrhythmias and heart failure symptoms and as biventricular failure in adults. The coronary risk in these patients is not clear. We present an incidental finding: the left anterior descending artery cut-off in a middle-aged man with ARVD/C...

Among the rare and well-known causes of sudden cardiac death by malignant arrthymias is a condition called arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. It commonly presents with right ventricular dilatation, dysfunction and ventricular tachycardia of left bundle branch morphology due to fibro-fatty infiltration of right ventricle in second to fifth decade of life, making it an unrecognized and important cause of sudden cardiac death. Two rare variants of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy are Carvajal syndrome and Naxos syndrome...
