Arrhythmogenic RV Dysplasia

Arrhythmogenic RV Dysplasia

In arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD), myocardium of RV free wall replaced by fibrofatty tissue. Regional wall motion/function is reduced and there is a propensity for ventricular arrhythmias. Sudden cardiac death (SCD) can occur in the young with ARVD. This disorder is also called as arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC).
