Se ha realizado tras consultar con profesionales de la salud y pacientes afectados por la enfermedad. Los latidos ventriculares prematuros no son peligrosos por si mismos y son relativamente frecuentes en personas sanas. Las personas con latidos ventriculares prematuros pueden sentir palpitaciones, notar latidos cardiacos fuera de su ritmo, o "vuelcos en el pecho". En ocasiones, puede ocurrir un error de deletreo en el proceso de copiado.

Overland Park, KS No obstante es frecuente la existencia de casos aislados. La mayor parte del miocardio del VD puede llegar a ser reemplazado por grasa 4,5. El septum suele ser respetado hasta llegar a estadios avanzados de la enfermedad. En algunos casos se observan placas de fibrosis. Es importante tener en cuenta que las alteraciones descriptas son inusuales en las formas leves.

Es importante tener en cuenta que un angiograma negativo no descarta MAVD. La enfermedad es progresiva y el VD puede verse afectado en forma difusa con el progreso de la misma. Por ello, el manejo de pacientes con MAVD es individual y basado en la experiencia de cada centro.

El tratamiento se dirige fundamentalmente al control de arritmias ventriculares malignas. Desfibrilador implantable. Este procedimiento se utiliza en casos seleccionados para aislar completamente la pared ventricular derecha. Algunos ya han comenzado. It is characterized pathologically by progressive fibrofatty replacement of the right ventricular myocardium and clinically by malignant ventricular arrhythmias.

Although it was considered an uncommon disease, it has been increasingly reported as cause of sudden arrhythmic death in young and otherwise healthy individuals. The etiology remains partially unknown although an autosomal dominant genetic predisposition was demonstrated. Non-familial and familial forms of the disease have been reported in the literature. The clinical manifestations varied from asymptomatic patients with an episode of sudden cardiac death as first symptom to chronically symptomatic patients with right or biventricular failure.

Major and minor criteria have been proposed for a positive diagnosis, which is very useful in the clinical practice. Common symptoms include exercise-induced palpitations, fatigue, dizziness, atypical chest pain and near-syncope or syncope.

The remaining patients can show signs of right ventricular failure. Frequently, the chest X-ray is normal. A common finding is T -wave inversion in V1 -V3, and sometimes through V6. The two-dimensional echocardiography is a very useful diagnostic test. Findings reported included right ventricular enlargement or multiple outpouchings and dyskinetic areas, mainly in the apical region or inferobasal wall.

Structural abnormalities of the moderator band, isolated dilatation of the right ventricular outflow tract, and travecular disarrangement have also been published. The left-ventricle is less frequently involved. In severe cases, tricuspid valve regurgitation can be found. Mitral valve prolapse is sometimes observed. The MRI shows excellent delineation of fat, which provides brighter signal and outline the subepicardial fat infiltration characteristic of this disease.

The CT scan features are a localized or diffuse involvement and dilatation of right ventricle, thinning of the right ventricular wall and hypokinesis.

The right ventricular cine-angiography is the gold standard for the diagnosis of the disease. It is also observed increased end-diastolic volume, slow evacuation of dye along the inferior wall, in fissures and aneurysms and in poorly contractile areas, and tricuspid valve prolapse associated with mild tricuspid insufficiency.

The endomyocardial biopsy may be helpful to confirm the diagnosis. The electrophysiological study with programmed ventricular stimulation is performed to induce ventricular tachycardia, define its morphologic characteristics and precise the region of origin in the right ventricle. It is very useful to evaluate the efficacy of antiarrhythmic drug treatment and implantable cardioverter defibrillator therapy. At present, there is limited information about clinical outcome of affected patients with overt disease, and even less on asymptomatic affected individuals.

The goal of the therapy is to prevent recurrent malignant ventricular arrhythmias. Although there are no precise guidelines to determine which are the patients who need to be treated and the best therapeutic approach, pharmacological treatment guided by programmed ventricular stimulation is considered the first step in patients with well-tolerated ventricular tachycardia.

Class I, class III antiarrhythmic drugs and betablockers, alone or combined, are the first and most frequently used therapy. The implantable cardioverter defibrillator is being increasingly used in the treatment of ventricular tachycardia and ventricular fibrillation.

In patients with frequent or incessant ventricular tachycardia or those who developed important side effects during drug therapy, radiofrequency ablation is the treatment of choice.
