Seventy patients have been identified as affected by arrhythmogenic right ventricle (ARV). They have been divided in 7 groups, according the different basic clinical approach, which brought them to our screening protocol: 14 died patients; 11 patients affected by sustained ventricular tachycardia; 7 affected by non sustained ventricular tachycardia; 2 survivors of a ventricular fibrillation; 3 affected by accelerated idioventricular rhythm; 7 familial members of patients affected by ARV; 16 patients screened for different reasons, mainly for participation screening for sports activities. We clinically differentiate ARV in two types: (1) Classical ARV, in which cardiomegaly, ventricular arrhythmias LBBB in morphology, inverted T waves, late potentials are highly prevalent; (2) Concealed ARV, in which only one of the clinical features may be present.
