Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia/Cardiomyopathy Program

The mission of the Johns Hopkins ARVD/C Program is three-fold. One goal is to provide education for patients and physicians about ARVD/C. A second goal is to faciliate the evaluation and management of patients with known or suspected ARVD/C. And the third, and most important goal, is to provide new knowledge of ARVD/C through our research efforts.

Long-term follow-up of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy patients with an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator for prevention of sudden cardiac death.
 

Author(s): Kang Yin, Ligang Ding, Yuqiu Li, Wei Hua

Journal: Clin Cardiol. 2017 Apr;40(4):216-221.

 

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a rare inherited cardiomyopathy with a high burden of ventricular arrhythmia, which is an important cause of sudden cardiac death (SCD). Implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) is believed to be the most reliable management against SCD.
