ARVD.net is a repository of information on research and treatment of Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy/Dysplasia (ARVD).


This disease is characterized by progressive fibrofatty replacement of right ventricular myocardium, initially with typical regional and later global right and some left ventricular involvement, with relative sparing of the septum. Familial disease is common, with autosomal dominant inheritance and incomplete pentrance; a recessive form is described. Presentation with arrhythmias and sudden death is common, particularly in the young.


ARVD.net is intended to provide information to patients and medical doctors.
