Less is known about pregnancy in women with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC). From April 1995 to May 2018, 157 women with ARVC were retrospectively enrolled. Data on pregnancy and cardiac outcomes were analyzed. There were 224 pregnancies in 120 patients including 30 (13.4%) spontaneous and 2 (0.9%) medical abortions, 12 cardiac adverse events were recorded including new onset frequent premature ventricular contractions (PVC) in 3 (2.5%) patients, previous PVC numbers increased more than 100% in 5 (4.2%), syncope in 2 (1.7%), sustained ventricular tachycardia and heart failure required hospitalization...

The score was developed and ...

ConclusionOur PPCM collective treated with standard therapy for heart failure, dopamine D2 receptor agonists, and anticoagulation displays a high and stable long ‐term recovery rate with low mortality at 5‐year follow‐up. However, long‐term use of cardiovascular medication, persisting orde novo hypertension and arrhythmias were frequent.

ConclusionOur findings suggest that LI is a sensitive parameter to guide RFC ‐ablation in patients with VT. LI indicates differences of tissue characteristics and generally is higher in patients with non‐ischemic cardiomyopathy. Hence, the etiology of the underlying cardiomyopathy needs to be considered when adopting LI for monitoring catheter ablation of VT.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.

ConclusionCRS/RA appears to be a  possible treatment option for otherwise untreatable patients suffering from refractory VT and electrical storm. A relevant reduction in VT incidence and ICD interventions was observed, although long-term outcome and consequences of CRS/RA remain unclear. Clinical trials are strongly warranted and have been initiated.

ConclusionsOur results suggest that sex-specific differences in LV geometry, hyper-contractility and diastolic function, not greater degree of LV myopathy, contribute to a higher, age-independent risk of diastolic HF in women with HCM.Graphical abstract
