Ventricular arrhythmias (VAs) represent a critical issue concerning sports eligibility assessment in athletes. The ideal diagnostic evaluation of competitive and leisure-time athletes with complex VAs has not been clearly defined. Aim of this study was to assess the clinical implications of invasive electrophysiological assessments and endomyocardial biopsy (EMB) among athletes with VA.
