Figure 1: Morphologic features in a 25 year old man who died suddenly from arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. (A) Four chamber view cut of the heart specimen showing the transmural fatty replacement of the right ventricular free wall and (more ...)
Figure 2: Twelve lead ECG obtained at preparticipation screening in a 19 year old football player who subsequently died from ARVC during a competitive game. Note the typical abnormalities consisting of inverted T waves from V1 to V4 and isolated premature (more ...)
Figure 3: MRI findings in a 22 year old woman with a history of dizziness and sustained ventricular tachycardia with an LBBB pattern. Short axis view showing a dilated right ventricle with a brighter signal from a thin anterior free wall. Reproduced from (more ...)
Treatment strategy in ARVC complicated by VT/VF.
Figure 5: A 24 year old man affected by ARVC complicated by severe ventricular arrhythmias, with a recent family history of sudden death. (A) Twelve lead ECG during programmed ventricular stimulation: the first two beats at sinus rhythm show a low voltage (more ...)
