ARVC/D Information for Patients

ARVD/C is an inherited disorder and one of the most common causes of sudden death in athletes and young, apparently healthy adults. Its prevalence is estimated at one in 5,000 people. The disorder causes scarring of the heart muscle, mainly on the right side, which interrupts the normal electrical activity of the heart.
