Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy is an inherited disease of the cardiomyocyte. The disease is diagnosed as a syndrome based on criteria that include ventricular arrhythmias, electrocardiographic findings, imaging, tissue characteristics and family history. An implantable cardioverter-defibrillator is generally recommended. Novel insight into the molecular genetic background has established that the disease may be associated with mutation in the genes encoding desmosomal proteins. Genetic testing is expected to facilitate the diagnostic workup and treatment of patients and their families.
