AB  - BACKGROUND: Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is a
      genetically determined heart muscle disorder. The incidence of heart failure (HF)
      in ARVC has been reported at 5-13%. We aimed to define the genotype and disease
      progression of ARVC patients with HF. METHODS: Patients with a definite diagnosis
      of ARVC who underwent genetic testing were consecutively recruited. Detailed
      clinical data was collected at baseline and during follow up. Clinical endpoint
      was a composite of heart transplantation and death due to HF. RESULTS: 135
      patients were included. 8 (5.9%) patients reached the endpoint. Patients reaching
      the endpoint were significantly more likely to carry a Plakophilin 2 mutation
      than patients without HF, and 50% had multiple variants, however only one patient
      had 2 pathogenic mutations. CONCLUSIONS: HF is a rare but significant outcome of 
      patients with a definite diagnosis of ARVC. Patients with HF predominantly
      carried Plakophilin 2 mutations and often had multiple variants. RV dysfunction
      appears to be a determinant of heart transplantation and death.
