Abstract

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is predominantly a genetically determined heart muscle disorder that is characterized by fibro-fatty replacement of the right ventricular (RV) myocardium.(1)) The clinical spectrum of ARVC may represent from asymptomatic premature ventricular complexes to ventricular tachycardia (VT) and sudden cardiac death (SCD). It is a well-known leading cause of SCD in young adults.(2,3))
