CMR provides the best imaging technique available for assessment of RV free wall contraction abnormalities and is particularly valuable in assessing patients with suspected arrhythmogenic RV dysplasia (ARVD).
Belakon, Vasilenko, Feldman, Campbell and Polani present the following principles resulting in CHF: chromosome abnormalities--5%; mutation of one gene--2-3%; environmental factor (alcoholism of the parents, rubella, ARVD, drugs and others)--12%; polygenic-multifocal inheritance--90% (Vein, 2003; Katin, 2000; Scvortcov and Ermolenko, 2003).
The screening program was predicated on an unusually high incidence of arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) in the region, however, and the 89% drop reported in the JAMA study brings the rate of sudden cardiac death in the region "to about what we see in our country;" Dr.
