Summary and Info
This book covers all aspects (biological, pathological, genetics, clinical and therapeutical) of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy/dysplasia, a recent cardiomyopathy which represents a very high risk of sudden death in the young and in athletes. The monograph presents the results of 5-year research program on ARVC/D supported by grants of both the European Commission and the NIH, which enabled the discovery of seven disease-causing genes, thus opening new avenues for the early identification of affected patients and for sudden death prevention. A panel of top scientists, both European and Americans, contributed to this volume, which will be an essential reference for professionals and residents in cardiology, radiology, human genetics, and sport medicine.
