Latest Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia Stories
Brothers Stan and Dominique Larkin both received the SynCardia Total Artificial Heart to save them from life-threatening genetic heart disease.
A common type of heart disease that causes sudden cardiac death in teenagers and young adults has been found to extend to primates, specifically chimpanzees.
A Johns Hopkins study finds that healthy people who carry a genetic mutation for arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia/cardiomyopathy (ARVD/C) are at much higher risk of developing the symptoms of the life-threatening heart disease if they participate in endurance sports and frequent exercise.
Programming an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator (ICD) with a long-detection interval compared with a standard-detection interval resulted in a reduction in anti-tachycardia pacing episodes, ICD shocks delivered, and inappropriate shocks.
For the first time ever, researchers have been able to develop a maturation-based “disease-in-a-dish” model for an inherited heart ailment – a discovery that will help researchers study and test new therapies for the condition.
Researchers at the National Heart Centre Singapore (NHCS) have successfully created a human heart cell model of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), an inherited heart muscle disorder which puts one at high risk of developing life-threatening arrhythmias and sudden cardiac death.
250,000 people in the U.S. die from sudden cardiac arrest every year. Now, a genetic variant in a cardiac protein could be linked to heart rhythm dysfunction.
ARVD is an inherited cardiovascular disorder and one of the most common causes of sudden death in athletes and young healthy adults.
An international panel of experts from The Heart Rhythm Society and the European Heart Rhythm Association issued new guideline recommendations for all health care professionals about cardiovascular genetic testing at the Heart Rhythm Society's 32nd Annual Scientific Sessions.
Researchers in Newfoundland have cracked the genetic code of a sudden death cardiac killer.
