Abstract

Arrhthmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia (ARVC/D) is a primary heart muscle disease characterized by transmural fibrofatty replacement of the right ventricle and clinically by life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias in apparently healthy people [1]. The disease results in a high risk of sudden death, particularly in young people [2] and athletes [3]. Over the past several years, the genetic basis of this disease has been unraveled and shown to be a disease of the desmosome [4]. Mutations in desmoplakin, plakoglobin, plakophilin, desmoglein, and desmocollin have been identified, along with the desmosome modifying gene TGF-β3 [5-10].
