Reuters Health - 01/03/2022 - In patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), changes in Holter exam findings after diagnosis were associated with the risk of sustained ventricular arrhythmias within a year, researchers say. "These findings...provide a new tool to dynamically monitor the risk of life-threatening cardiac arrhythmias in patients with ARVC during follow-up," Dr. Hugh Calkins of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore told Reuters Health by email. "Holters are available worldwide, are inexpensive, and the interpretation of the number of premature ventricular contractions (PVCs) is straightforward." As reported in JAMA Cardiology, Dr. Calkins and colleagues analyzed data on 169 patients with ARVC (mean age, 36.3; 56%, men) who had Holter monitoring results at diagnosis, plus at least two additional Holter results during follow-up. The main outcomes were the association between prespecified variables retrie...
