Abstract
Objective: To evaluate studies regarding the prevalence of ventricular tachycardia (VT) reoccurrence following catheter ablation in patients with arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) who present with persistent ventricular tachycardia. Methods: Literature was identified using CINAHL and PubMed and evaluated for effectiveness of catheter ablation in preventing VT reoccurrence following ablation in ARVC patients with persistent ventricular tachycardia. Results: Most of the literature found catheter ablation to be an effective treatment for ARVC patients with persistent ventricular tachycardia, however, ventricular tachycardia reoccurrence was common in the majority of the studies. Across the 9 nine studies analyzed, after one catheter ablation procedure the VT reoccurrence rate was near 50%. Conclusion: Catheter ablation shows promising results for ARVC patients with persistent VT. However, further research should be done to fully establish the efficacy of this treatment. The use of improved mapping techniques could potentially lower VT reoccurrence rates following ablation.
