The Lead Episode 8: A Discussion of Individualized Family Screening for Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy
Andrew D. Krahn, MD, FHRS discusses this article with guests Jason D. Roberts, MD and Julia Cadrin-Tourigny, MD, PhD, CCDS. Clinical guidelines recommend regular screening for arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) to monitor at-risk relatives, resulting in a significant burden on clinical resources. Prioritizing relatives on their probability of developing definite ARVC may provide more efficient patient care.
Learning Objectives
  • The aim of this study was to determine the predictors and probability of ARVC development over time among at-risk relatives.
