Long-Term Effects of ARVC
Without the right treatment, ARVC can lead to heart failure, or tragically, to sudden death. We work to prevent these things from happening. In fact, our top aim is to stop ARVC from progressing and causing heart damage.
In some cases, children with ARVC or children who have genetic markers of ARVC need to change their exercise plan. We know that aspects like exercise restriction can be challenging. Not being able to participate in certain activities can affect someone’s quality of life. This is why we use a shared decision-making model to devise a plan to help a child live their best life.
Every child is different, but we work as a team to find the right approach. We want to help young people with ARVC live as normal a life as possible.
