Abstract

Endocardial and epicardial electroanatomical mapping and ablation is a safe and effective therapy in the treatment of right ventricle arrhythmias occurring in the setting of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVD). Careful mapping and ablation plans must be tailored for each patient based on comorbidities and ventricular tachycardia morphologies. This review focuses on the catheter ablation for ventricular arrhythmias in patients with ARVD.
