Background: Preliminary data suggest that Atrial Fibrillation (AFib) is common in patients with Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC) and present at a younger age than in controls....

Abstract Background Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a leading cause of sudden cardiac death, but its progression over time and predictors of arrhythmias are still being defined. Objectives This study sought to describe the clinical course of ARVC and occurrence of life-threatening arrhythmic events (LAE) and cardiovascular mortality; identify risk factors associated with increased LAE risk; and define the response to therapy. Methods We determined the clinical course of...

Introduction: Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillators (ICD) are used to prevent Sudden Cardiac Death (SCD) in patients with Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy (ARVC), but data on their efficacy and safety in the long-term are scant. Methods: We reviewed our prospective registry for ARVC patients who were carriers of an ICD. Results: Eighty-one ARVC patients (55 males) received an ICD at 42±15 years: 13 (16%) patients were implanted for “secondary prevention” of SCD, after surviving ...

Up to 14,500 young individuals die suddenly every year in Europe of cardiac pathologies. The majority of these tragic events are related to a group of genetic defects that predispose the development of malignant arrhythmias (inherited arrhythmogenic diseases [IADs]). IADs include both cardiomyopathies (hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy, dilated cardiomyopathy) and channelopathies (long QT syndrome, short QT syndrome, Brugada syndrome and catecholaminerg...
