CUENCA GONZALEZ, Concepción; FLORES TORRES, Isabel; HERRANZ TORRUBIANO, Ana María  y  BERZAL CANTALEJO, María Fernanda. Patient with arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia: electrocardiographic abnormalities, treatment and indications for cardiac rehabilitation programs. Rev Clin Med Fam [online]. 2015, vol.8, n.1, pp.84-87. ISSN 2386-8201.

The arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia is one of the most common causes of sudden death in young adults. The clinical profile is variable, ranging from asymptomatic patients, ventricular and supraventricular arrhythmias, right or biventricular heart failure, to even sudden death, at any stage of the disease. From primary care consultations, we can capture asymptomatic patients suspected of having this disease. There are no clear guidelines regarding treatment of asymptomatic patients without arrhythmias. In patients with moderate risk, drug treatment is advisable. In patients with high arrhythmia risk, radiofrequency ablation, placement of an Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator (ICD), and cardiac transplantation should be considered. There is evidence of the undeniable physical and psychological benefits that Cardiac Rehabilitation Programs achieve in ICD patients, as well as of the low risks that well-planned training poses.
