Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy Caused by a Novel Frameshift Mutation [Case Report]
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy is a rare cardiomyopathy that might be asymptomatic or symptomatic, causing palpations or syncope, and might lead to sudden cardiac death. It is recommended that physical exertion be reduced. It is also recommended that those with syncope and ventricular tachycardia/ventricular fibrillation have an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator placed. Î²-Blockers, antiarrhythmic drugs, and radiofrequency ablation should be used to control the ventricular arrhythmia burden in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy.
