How is ARVD treated?

There is currently no cure for ARVD. Treatment involves controlling abnormal heartbeats and managing heart failure. Your doctor may give you medicine (called an antiarrhythmic) to keep your heart beating at a normal rate. Some people may need a device known as a pacemaker put near their heart to control the heart beat. Some people need surgery to keep their heart from beating too fast.
