Diagnostic Challenges in Rare Causes of Arrhythmogenic Cardiomyopathy-The Role of Cardiac MRI.

J Pers Med 2022 Jan 31;12(2). Epub 2022 Jan 31.

Department of Cardiovascular and Thoracic Surgery, "Iuliu Hatieganu" University of Medicine and Pharmacy Cluj Napoca, 8, Victor Babes, St., 400012 Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) is a rare genetic condition of the myocardium, with a significantly high risk of sudden death. Recent genetic research and improved understanding of the pathophysiology tend to change the ARVD definition towards a larger spectrum of myocardial involvement, which includes, in various proportions, both the right (RV) and left ventricle (LV), currently referred to as ACM (arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy). Its pathological substrate is defined by the replacement of the ventricular myocardium with fibrous adipose tissue that further leads to inadequate electrical impulses and translates into varies degrees of malignant ventricular arrythmias and dyskinetic myocardium movements.
