Although first reported several decades ago, the combination of ventricular tachyarrhythmias and right ventricular diseases only triggered distinctive attention in recent years. This book covers the whole spectrum of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathies. The reader will find the basic information about the anatomical substrate, the pathophysiologic mechanisms, and the clinical forms. A careful review of the diagnostic tests tackles the numerous available options ranging from the traditional electrocardiogram to the most recent imaging techniques. Also discussed are the therapeutic tools, including drugs, and the nonpharmacologic approaches. With clarifying illustrations, in color when necessary, this book serves not only the specialists in arrhythmias, but cardiologists in general.
