Abstract

Arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy (AC) is characterized by regional or global abnormalities of right ventricular structure and function and ventricular tachyarrhythmias. The structural abnormalities of the right ventricular myocardium provide the basis for the main clinical and diagnostic features of AC. However, the clinical diagnosis of AC may be difficult to make because there is no easily obtained single test or finding with high diagnostic accuracy. This article discusses the role of ventricular angiography in AC and its features.
