P.; Fontaine, G.; Gear, K.; Hauer, R.; Nava, A.; Picard, Michael Howard; Protonotarios, N.; Saffitz, Jeffrey E; Sanborn, Danita M. Yoerger; Steinberg, J. S.; Tandri, H.; Thiene, G.; Towbin, J. A.; Tsatsopoulou, A.; Wichter, T.; Zareba, W. (Ovid Technologies (Wolters Kluwer Health), 2010)
      Background: In 1994, an International Task Force proposed criteria for the clinical diagnosis of ARVC/D which facilitated recognition and interpretation of the frequently non-specific clinical features of ARVC/D. This ...
    • Mechanistic Insights into Arrhythmogenic Right Ventricular Cardiomyopathy Caused by Desmocollin-2 Mutations 

      Gehmlich, Katja; Syrris, Petros; Peskett, Emma; Evans, Alison; Ehler, Elisabeth; Asimaki, Angeliki; Anastasakis, Aris; Tsatsopoulou, Adalena; Vouliotis, Apostolos-Ilias; Stefanadis, Christodoulos; Protonotarios, Nikos; McKenna, William J.; Saffitz, Jeffrey E. (Oxford University Press, 2011)
      Aims: Recent immunohistochemical studies observed the loss of plakoglobin (PG) from the intercalated disc (ID) as a hallmark of arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy (ARVC), suggesting a final common pathway for ...
    • Role of the intercalated disc in cardiac propagation and arrhythmogenesis 

      Kleber, Andre G.; Saffitz, Jeffrey E. (Frontiers Media S.A., 2014)
      This review article discusses mechanisms underlying impulse propagation in cardiac muscle with specific emphasis on the role of the cardiac cell-to-cell junction, called the “intercalated disc.”The first part of this review ...
