Holter interpretation showed: Interpretation
Sinus rhythm with first degree A-V block with bundle branch block and left anterior fascicular block morphology, rates 47-100bpm, avergae 67bpm.
One brief period of high degree A-V block. (sinus and junctional rhythm <narrow and unblocked QRS noted>).
Blocked APBs noted and brief runs of blocked atrial premature beats (2:1 A-V conduciton).
Occasional supraventricular ectopic beats, including three non-sustained runs of supraventicular tachycardia, longest
duration 20 beats at 01.28hrs, rate 86bpm, fastest 11 beats at 18:39 hrs, 132bpm. One atrial triplet and rare atrial
couplets.
Infrequent ventricular premature beats.
There were no symptoms reported by the patient.

Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia: 

Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Dysplasia (ARVD) is a rare cardiomyopathy in which the heart muscle of the right ventricle is replaced by a fat and/or fibrous tissue. The right ventricle is dilated and contracts poorly. Because that the ability of the heart to pump blood is usually weakened. Patient with ARVD often have arrhythmias, which increase the risk of sudden cardiac arrest or death. The prevalence varies according to the population studied but is estimated at 1:1000 to 1:10000.Family history can be found it in up to 50% of the cases
ECG showed : sinus rhythm with wide QRS complex (110-120ms) and typical Epsilon waves (arrows).

La displasia arritmogénica del ventrículo derecho (DAVD)

La Displasia arritmogénica del Ventrículo Derecho es una forma poco frecuente de miocardiopatía en el que el miocardio del ventrículo derecho (VD) se sustituye por tejido graso y / o fibroso. El ventrículo derecho se dilata y se contrae mal. Como resultado, la capacidad del corazón para bombear la sangre por lo general se debilitó. Los pacientes con DAVD frecuentemente tienen arritmias, que pueden aumentar el riesgo de paro cardiaco repentino o la muerte.

La prevalencia es muy variable de acuerdo a la población estudiada pero se estima en 1:1000 a 1:10000. se puede encontrar una historia familiar en hasta el 50% de los casos.

El ECG muestra onda Epsilon (flechas)

El ECG muestra ritmo sinusal, QRS ancho (aproximadamente 110-120ms) con ondas típicas “épsilon” .
