Description

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia is an inherited heart muscle disorder that may cause abnormal electrical heart rhythms and weakening of the pumping action of the heart, resulting in sudden death. The electrocardiograph (EKG) is used to diagnose the disease, so it is important for cardiac electrophysiologists to be familiar with the disease and to be able  to recognize it on the EKG.
