Arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia (ARVD) predominantly involves the right ventricle, and myocardium is progressively replaced by fat and fibrous tissue in the apex, base, and outflow tract regions. This pathology, and the progressive nature of the disease, poses special challenges for implant and subsequent appropriate functioning of an implantable cardioverter-defibrillator. This case report describes a solution to problems during lead placement in patients with ARVD.
