What is Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD)

ARVD is an abbreviation for the English term Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia. Some also use the term ARVC - Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular cardiomyopathy. ARVD is a condition characterized by life-threatening arrhythmias of the heart chambers (ventricular arrhythmias) caused an accelerating replacement (transformation) of muscle tissue (myocardium) in the right ventricle wall with a tissue consisting of a mixture of connective tissue and fat tissue. Since these tissues lack the ability to participate in the cardiac muscle work, will increasingly be adequate to demonstrate how this area just "flutter" in the heart muscle work. The damaged area bags out (forming an aneurysm) when the heart contracts to push out blood from the chambers to the heart - the weakened heart wall gives way. In time, the right ventricle increased in size because it is so limp. Vevs The distribution may also include areas of the left ventricle, but fewer heart septum (septum).

The condition was first described in 1977, and we know little about the cause, but it can cause a sudden - and often unexpected - cardiac arrest and possibly death.
