AGARWAL, S.C., ET AL.: Pacing to Restore Right Ventricular Contraction After Surgical Disconnection for Arrhythmia Control in Right Ventricular Cardiornyopathy. Ventricular tachycardia in ARVC (arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy) is typically managed by ICD implantation, with a limited role of catheter ablation. Surgical disconnection of the right ventricular (RV) has been used to control ventricular tachycardia (VT) in ARVC, but it often led to refractory RV failure due to loss of RV contraction after surgery. We report multisite pacing to recruit the disconnected RV to prevent ventricular failure.
