Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) also called as arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) is an inherited heart muscle disease that predominantly affects the right ventricle (RV). The main pathologic feature is the progressive loss of RV myocardium and its replacement by fibrofatty tissue. Clinical manifestations develop most often between the second and third decades of life and are related to ventricular tachycardia (VT) or ventricular fibrillation (VF), which may lead to sudden death in young people.
