Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy- what have we learnt in 20 years?

by Prof. Hugh Calkins
Director, Cardiac Arrhythmia Service, Professor of Medicine, Johns Hopkins Hospital


  • Natural history of the disease and stratification
  • Difficult decision-making in ARVD, common causes for overdiagnosis
  • Using isoprenaline challenge to differentiate idiopathic VT
  • Challenges with S-ICD in this population
  • The roles of exercise, autonomics and inflammation

These lectures were given as part of the Virtual #EPFellowsConference during the Covid Pandemic in 2020 to provide an ongoing learning opportunity for EP trainees. The videos were recorded from the Zoom live meetings and produced by Dr Nishant Verma (@NishantVermaMD), Associate Professor of Medicine, Cardiac Electrophysiology, Northwestern University. He also organised and co-ordinated the conference and we are very grateful for his effort and hard work. The content is expected to be valuable to subspeciality trainees but also as a refresher to Consultants.

Permissions to host on the BHRS site were given to Dr Nikhil Ahluwalia, BHRS trainee rep. The opinions expressed are those of the speaker and do not necessarily reflect UK guidelines or those of BHRS. These videos are for educational purposes only for healthcare professionals.

If any UK-based trainees would like to live login the the twice weekly lectures given by eminent speakers in Cardiac Electrophysiology, please email or DM @nikhil_ahl on twitter for the Zoom meet-up details and log-in password.
