Disease progression and ventricular arrhythmias (VAs) in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) are correlated with physical exercise, with clinical de-training and competitive sport practice avoidance being suggested in ARVC patients. A recent algorithm assessing primary arrhythmic risk in ARVC patients has been developed by Cadrin-Tourigny et al . Data regarding its transferability in athletes are lacking. Aim of this study was to assess reliability of the Cadrin-Tourigny risk prediction algorithm in a cohort of athletes with ARVC; to describe impact of clinical detraining on disease progression.
