Although the pathogenesis of ventricular outflow tract tachycardia has not been fully elucidated, recent findings suggest that defects in cAMP signalling may be involved

  • ARVD, arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia
  • cAMP, cyclic adenosine monophosphate
  • DAD, delayed afterdepolarisation
  • GTP, guanosine triphosphate
  • MRI, magnetic resonance imaging
  • RVOT, right ventricular outflow tract
  • VT, ventricular tachyarrhythmia
  • adenosine
  • triggered activity
  • ventricular tachycardia
