I have a small table of the different chromosomes that are implicated in ARVD. Specifically the seven types of ARVD and the gene locus that is implicated in each type.

It's of no use clinically, since no screening tests are available to the public. If anyone wants me to add the table, drop a note here.

Most common name (in Europe, at least) is Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. I have done a redirect from that - but I'd favour switching it around so that the main article is at ARVC. Any thoughts? I have also been working on cardiomyopathy, and I have some good stuff on dilated cardiomyopathy almost ready. Hugh2414 16:36, 20 Apr 2004 (UTC)

I'm not extremely attached to ARVD, and ARVC does seem to go along with the naming convention :-)... The names are pretty interchangeable, from what I gathered. The one thing - a google search on ARVD yields 10 of the first 10 pages on target. A search on ARVC yields 2 of the first 10 on target, with most of the others going to something about national parks and stuff. My guess is that many people will search for either ARVD or both.
Also, the article's already written, and would need quite a few changes to move it over. :-)
It's good to hear about the other work your doing on the cardiomyopathies. I did this one since I had written up a presentation on the topic a couple years ago. :-) I'm working my way through the list on cardiology. Maybe I'll skip over the cardiomyopathies for a while. :-) Ksheka 21:02, Apr 20, 2004 (UTC)

OK - let's leave it at AVRD. I'd be very happy for you to leave the cardiomyopathies with me for the moment, to see if I can translate intention into action. I have DCM pretty much done (but not yet posted), and then I'll get on to the other two. Hugh2414 09:37, 21 Apr 2004 (UTC)

To do:

Make "gold standard" link to somewhere other than gold standard, since that's obviously not what we mean in this context. Maybe something like Gold standard in medicine, or something like that. The page will eventually 1. define what a gold standard test is, 2. Define how a gold standard is established, 3. define how a test can be better than the gold standard, and 4. define how a new gold standard test is established. Maybe also how it got the name, with a link back to gold standard.

Definitely not something I want to work on at the moment, but I'll keep it on my radar. Ksheka 13:09, Apr 25, 2004 (UTC)

Arrythmogenic cardiomyopathy[edit]

The term ARVD (arrythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia) is, now, considered obsolete. For the last decade it is properly called ARVC (arrythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy) since it has been classified by who in cardiomyopathies in 1994. Finally the term Arrythmogenic Cardiomyopathy seems to be be the most appropriate since there are cases with left ventricular involvment and so it is a biventricular cardiomyopathy. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Proton838 (talkcontribs) 20:03, 4 July 2010 (UTC)

Fabrice Muamba[edit]

Is it actually the case that Fabrice Muamba has ARVC? This got added around the time of the James Taylor announcement and all articles I've seen simply state that James Taylor's ARVC is a similar condition to that which afflicted Fabrice Muamba. Opk (talk) 11:07, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

Fabrice had HCOM [1]. I've removed it Heezy (talk) 19:20, 15 May 2016 (UTC)
