Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy
Are any symptoms of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy "odd" or "unique"?
Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) should be suspected in individuals with any of the following findings:
- Fainting/Syncope- particularly with exercise or exertion
- Sudden cardiac death
- Abnormal ECG with T wave inversion in right precordial leads V1, V2, and V3 or beyond and an epsilon wave - a small positive deflection at the end of the QRS complex
- Abnormal right ventricle seen through cardiac imaging
