Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia: Introduction

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia: A rare heart muscle disease where the muscle tissue of the right ventricle of the heart is replaced by fibrous or fatty tissue which affects the ability of the heart to pump blood. More detailed information about the symptoms, causes, and treatments of Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia is available below.

Definitions of Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia:

A congenital cardiomyopathy in which transmural infiltration of adipose tissue results in weakness and aneurysmal bulging of the infundibulum, apex, and posterior basilar region of the right ventricle and leads to ventricular tachycardia arising in the right ventricle. (Dorland, 28th ed) - (Source - Diseases Database)

Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia is listed as a "rare disease" by the Office of Rare Diseases (ORD) of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This means that Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, or a subtype of Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia, affects less than 200,000 people in the US population.

Ophanet, a consortium of European partners, currently defines a condition rare when it affects 1 person per 2,000. They list Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia as a "rare disease".
