The purpose of this overview is to increase the awareness of clinicians regarding genetic causes of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) and provide a basic view of genetic risk assessment of at-risk asymptomatic relatives of a proband with ARVC in order to inform cardiac surveillance and allow early detection and treatment of ARVC to improve long-term outcomes.
The following are the goals of this overview.
Goal 1: Describe the clinical characteristics of ARVC.
Goal 2: Review the genetic causes of ARVC.
Goal 3: Provide an evaluation strategy to identify the genetic cause of ARVC in a proband.
Goal 4: Inform genetic risk assessment in family members of a proband.
Goal 5: Review management of ARVC.
