I feel for you but suspect that this is outside most of our knowledge. I wish you well.

The ARVC is very common in athletes and I can only imagine how frustrated you are at this point. . The epicardial ablation is a bigger procedure and it has to be stressful to contemplate, but hopefully it will be what finally puts you back to normal. From what I know it is usually successful at ending the VT once and for all. Hopefully someone else on the forum has had this and can share his / her experience with you. Meanwhile, ask your EP for as much information as possible to help you to prepare. We're all hoping this will be the answer for you!


thx a lot srm grandma yea its really frustrating for me
