Arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy is a rare condition. The impact of the condition on the heart muscle, impacts on the ability of the heart to pump properly.  An Implantable Cardioverter Defibrillator can help patients, as the device sends an electric shock to the heart when an abnormal heart rhythm is detected. This could prevent a cardiac arrest.
