Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD), and is expressed as ARVD/C now. ARVC is characterized by the right ventricular myocardium being replaced by progressive fibrous adipose tissue.
common complications of this disease are arrhythmia, syncope, sudden death and so on.
Ventricular arrhythmias are the most common complication, characterized by recurrent and non-sustained ventricular tachycardia. When ventricular tachycardia occurs, dizziness, palpitations, syncope, and even ventricular fibrillation may occur at the same time. Emotionality or tiredness can induce ventricular tachycardia.
The disease is often complicated by severe ventricular arrhythmia (ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation), which affects hemodynamics.
Sudden death is more common in young people no more than 35 years old, and can be induced in emotional or strenuous exercise. A few people have a family history of sudden death.
Key words: arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia; common complications of ARVC.
