AbstractArrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC) is described as a disease that has an autosomal dominant trait with reduced penetrance, that appears in dogs between two and eight years of age. Boxers are predisposed to ARVC. Some of the symptoms of ARVC are fainting, attacks of tachycardia - especially vetnricular tachycardia and sudden cardiac death. The aim of the study was to estimate the usefulness of 24-h Holter monitoring and the level of troponin I (cTnI) in examining the treatment of Boxers with ARVC. 24-h Holter monitoring and plasma concentrations of cTnI were carried out every three months after introducing anti-arrhythmic treatment (metoprolol prolongatum, sotalol or amiodaron). There was a significant correlation between the number of ventricular premature complexes (VPC) over a 24-h period and the level of cTnl. No correlation was found between the appearance of monitoring ventricular tachycardia (VT) and the level of cTnI. The presented results show the possibility to use cTnl to evaluate the efficacy of antiarrhythmia treatment in dogs with ARVC.
